            The Two Popes: Official Tie-in to Major New Film Starring Sir Anthony Hopkins (Paperback, TV Tie-In)

            On 28 February 2013, a 600-year-old tradition was shattered- Pope Benedict XVI made a startling announcement. He would resign. This story begins with the death of John Paul, through Benedict's election and reign - taking in the controversies that blighted the world's largest chur...ch - to his subsequent and shocking resignation. We see white smoke from the Sistine Chapel and a reluctant successor who breaks with tradition at once, declaring, I am a sinner. This is the most accurate definition. It is not a figure of speech, a literary genre. I am a sinner. Francis returns inside, invites the cardinals to join him, and serves them ice-cream. From the prize-winning screenwriter of The Theory of Everything and Darkest Hour, The Pope is a poignant and often funny tale of an odd couple, of two very different men whose destinies converge and profoundly influence each other. What issues occupy the two men as they walk and talk in the Vatican gardens together, or later, when they share a light dinner, accompanied by Benedict's favorite drink, Fanta? This is both a biography of two popes and a story of the grace and extra wisdom that comes if a sinner can put their sins behind them.

            What was life like for a Tongan migrant in New Zealand in the 1970s and onwards? In this tribute to Sione Tavo Manukia (1936-2008), his daughter Ruby tells of his early life in Tonga and his experiences in New Zealand, as he sought a prosperous life and further education for his ...children. He settled in West Auckland and gained a job at Crown Lynn Pottery's New Lynn brickworks. He then helped other migrants gain employment at the brickworks, which enabled them to assist their families back home by sending remittances. As more migrants arrived, Sione Tavo realised that a church group base was required to host and assist them on a daily basis. This was the beginning of Pulela'a New Lynn Tongan Methodist Church, founded in 1975, where Sione Tavo served as the head church steward for 30 years. There are valuable lessons in this book for other migrants seeking work and opportunities in New Zealand. Sione Tavo's story demonstrates how through hard work, and moral and ethical determination, you can be successful in whatever you set out to achieve.
