About-

Phillip Carson, Indiana born and raised, is faced with the decision of moving to California in early adolescence for the sake of his mother’s health. He follows his parents to the Los Angeles area, where the adventure of his life begins. There he meets Susan Giles, a light in his life during the more innocent time of high school. They become an item, and she returns to his life post-college when he is dealing with three adversaries and his own internal struggles. During the eleventh grade, Phillip also meets retired fireman William Jones. William became a positive influence in other people’s lives after suffering a huge loss and trying to make the right decisions going forward. He commits his retirement years to reaching out to inner-city juveniles and later becomes a good friend to Phillip. Phillip learns from William and must later grow in his own faith to complete the challenges set before him. This is a story of the shadows of strife being overcome, and virtue left standing.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Klass demonstrates the power of the Holy Spirit working in our lives and God’s purpose of having a variety of people coming together to be an example of his perfect plan for us to serve him according to his will.”

—Joe Raducka, Prison Ministry and Parish Pastoral Council



“I took away from the book the fact that little things that we do can make a big influence on others. And while it is easier to just let it go, it is very important to follow through with intentions that, when acted upon, can make a huge difference in the lives of others. . . . If that comes from Virtue and Strife, then what a success it has been for me. What can it do for you?”

—Tom Mullen, Eucharistic Minister



“This is a good, socially responsible story that sadly is missing in much of our more popular modern literary field today.”

—Norm Behrens, Head Usher, and Lector



Virtue and Strife: A Christian Adventure is a story with an interesting theme relevant to our times . . . a cast of diverse characters experiencing valuable life lessons . . . inspiring and uplifting.”

—Jean Klippstein, Office Manager



“The author capably delivers the message of redemption and the importance of making a difference in people’s lives. . . . This is truly a great read, and a strong reminder, that no matter how turbulent things may be during our journey in life, there is always something to thank God for.”

—Rosaria Eskeranli, Artist, Retired Sales Manager
