Product Description

All Christians share ancient traditions of recognizing saints and practicing faith in the midst of a cloud of witnesses. They also share the heritage of the Protestant Reformation and the sometimes radical change in attitudes toward saints that resulted from these upheavals. What does this shared history tell us about what it means to be a saint today? This compelling guide includes profiles of ancient, medieval, and modern figures, East and West, the sublime and the unusual, with special chapters exploring:

  • Differences between Catholic and Protestant imaginations
  • How saints were recognized in the past and how they are today
  • Devotions and spiritual practices
  • The radical triumph of the Protestant idea
  • Miracles, doubt, and belief
  • Tears, pain, foolishness, apparitions, stigmata, and more strange, saintly behavior.
