Ennobling Encounters

by Dr. Richard Bishirjian

In this memoir, Dick Bishirjian tells of how his life has been enriched by the many noble persons he has met over the course of his professional life. That time coincides with the early years of the conservative “movement” in America. In such a world as ours, he argues, it is important to remember the great souls who ennoble us.

TESTIMONIALS

“Richard Bishirjian has been immersed in the conservative intellectual movement for decades and emerges in these pages as one of its most profound and interesting commentators. His story reminds us of the importance of remembering those thinkers who inspire us to lead better, bolder lives. He himself is one of those thinkers.” — Allen Mendenhall, Associate Dean and Grady Rosier Professor, Sorrell College of Business at Troy University
