Pursuit of Wisdom
Reviewed By Rabia Tanveer for Readers’ Favorite
Review Rating: 5-Stars - Congratulations on your 5-star review!
Pursuit of Wisdom by Robert T. Fertig is a book about finding the truth in everything that surrounds us. We all want acceptance and unconditional love; we crave it and it is in our most basic nature. However, we are also curious by nature, which is the reason why we need to know and understand the meaning behind the most common things in life. From understanding the “truth” of cultural change, climate change and even how or if we can live together as a community, these are the questions that we ask ourselves every day. The author talks about how these truths are important, how they are necessary for us to build a community, build trust and understand what it takes to accept every human being as a valuable addition to the community.

Culture Battles: Truth Shall Prevail by Robert T. Fertig is a compelling, thought-provoking book that invites readers to think about culture and to ponder existential issues that are prevalent in contemporary history. The reader is offered a wide selection of reflections, each crafted on a specific theme, but the overall book deals with the question of why we are here, why we experience the cultural and religious differences that have been behind the numerous tensions in modern times. This is a powerful work that is well-researched and that enters into dialogue with the best thinkers the world has ever known, experts in religious and cultural phenomena, and writers who have articulated on ideas of life, cultural dialogue, the purpose of human life, the place of culture in the evolution of life and human consciousness, and a lot more. Fertig’s writing is exceptional and not like anything one sees too often. The reader is left in no doubt that this book is well-researched and that the author knows what he is talking about. It is interesting to notice the author’s mastery of the different schools of thought, including the core teachings of doctrines like Christianity, Islam, atheism, and others.
Miraculous. The original story by Father Freddy focused on Patsy Li, a child of six whom he miraculously saved from death in the jungles of Guadalcanal, during World War II, with the grace of the Lord. It is also a story about a mother’s unrelenting love and search for her lost child. After researching these historical events, this writer believes that Patsy Li was the “receiver” of a miraculous cure, while Father Gehring, known as the “Padre of Guadalcanal,” was the “instrument” of God’s miraculous deeds during this brutal war.
At all times, I tried to preserve the accuracy of these historical events. With these objectives in mind, I changed the storyline making it more “present tense,” while creating vivid new scenes, materials and photos from the Vincentian Mission in Germantown, Pa. he actual “voice from the past” is that of the late Padre of Guadalcanal. During my investigation for this work, I communicated directly with Patsy Li. What I learned from our discussions alters part of the conclusions of the original story. I have include these astonishing new facts in this book and screenplay.

“Guardianship Reality is well written, a book that covers most of what readers would love to know about guardianship, with concise definitions of terms, evaluation of processes, social and legal commentaries, and a lot more. … This is a book that anyone interested in guardianship should read, especially health care administrators, law enforcement officers, lawyers, social workers, and other categories of persons or agencies interested in providing excellent services to the vulnerable. It is highly informative and loaded with wisdom.” Christian Sia for Readers’ Favorite.
After retiring from the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program, we can now be more candid and outspoken about the Department of Children and Families (DCF), Eckerd (ECA), and Guardianship successes, and failures. This is a sequel to our work, Guardians Without Wings. This work contains more case examples and greater depth of research, including other state’s systems. Edited by Miriam A. Fertig, M.A.
The title, “Best Interest” of the Child, is the standard used in deciding the disposition of cases following adjudication of abandonment, abuse, neglect, and Termination of Parental Rights (TPR) proceedings. Guardian ad Litem (known as CASA in other states) is the person appointed by the court judge to look after the Best Interest of the Child. It involves children’s physical, emotional, social, psychological, and family circumstances. The basis for this book is the author’s personal notes and experiences. These were real cases. The events described in this work are true. To assure anonymity, individuals discussed are composites and all identifying characteristics of people, time and places were altered. Guardian ad Litem and C.A.S.A. did not sponsor this book.
Sword of Allah: Espionage, Passion and Love during the Crisis
After giving his keynote speech at an Information Technology conference in New York City, Vincent meets CEO Charley, who will forever change his life. He becomes the key player in a deal gone bad in the Middle East, setting into motion a dangerous chain of events with profound worldwide consequences.
As the plot code-named “Sword of Allah” emerges, Vincent is entangled in affairs with two mysterious women. There is Eva, a wild seductress in Monaco, who lures him into a world of extravagant wealth that hides her dark secrets. There is Anne, a reluctant French double agent, who might become his soul mate, if she can survive her dangerous mission. Both women offer a passion and vitality missing in his current sedate suburban life.
As we follow Vincent’s journey, themes of identity, betrayal and redemption emerge, within the drama of espionage and seduction with global stakes. Actual characters interweave with real world events and U.S. Presidents.
The story’s period brings us right up to the present, and a future that is actually happening today. Vincent learns the lessons of life and love as the international plot between Iran, Syria, and Israel and the U. S. comes together to confront him. He discovers that the real battleground is that freedom that we all have: choosing between good and evil.
“… The author has done an extraordinary job of describing events, corruption, and seedy characters. Readers will feel as if they were right there. [Sword of Allah] is scary, informational and very entertaining.” Carol Hoyer, PhD., for Readers Views
