ZVONIMIR Troskot was born in 1984 in Zagreb.
He played football, graduated from the Faculty of Economics, and became known to the public as the face of the Civic Initiative People Decide, which was aimed at changing the electoral system.
He is now Most’s candidate for parliament, and these are his five favorite books.
Scott Hahn – Hail, Holy Queen
In general, I am a great lover of all the works of Scott Hahn, whom, along with Pope Benedict XVI, I consider the most important living biblical theologian. Of all his works, my favorite is Hail, Holy Queen, in which, based on numerous sources, he scientifically, philosophically and theologically gives a picture of Mary, according to which as a little boy he had a very distorted picture, which he describes in the book. I warmly recommend this book to anyone who truly wants to get to know Mary and her role in Christianity.
John Lennox – Gunning for God: Why the New Atheists are Missing the Target
This book is a great contribution in the dialogue of all those who have opposing views on God and science because this sympathetic university professor from Oxford unites them with each other. It shows in a very drinkable way that the development of science and the existence of God are not mutually exclusive. In addition, Professor John Lennox has publicly debated with the world’s most famous atheists Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss. In addition to this book, I recommend these debates to all those who are interested in this topic.
Noam Chomsky – Manufacturing Consent
Professor Noam Chomsky has phenomenal analytical insights into the way the media and political elites around the world influence public opinion. This book helped me understand the trends in which media and politics intertwine. Although I do not agree with some of Professor Chomsky’s views, I have learned a lot from his way of presenting sources and arguments.
A.K. Dixit and B.J.Nalebuff – Thinking Strategically
This is one of the best books that explains complex mathematical decision-making models in a very pragmatic way (for example: The Prisoner’s Dilemma), which is particularly instructive to me in the context of economics, business, and politics.
Irving Stone – Agony and ecstasy
This is my favorite novel, which depicts all of Michelangelo’s inner turmoil and his resistance to painting. The most beautiful paintings I was left with were his love of sculpture and how in the rough stone, even before he started carving, he saw what the sculpture should look like. This love for sculpture is best seen in the sculpture of David.
