Saints are not born, they are made. And many, as Saints Behaving Badly reveals, were made of very rough materials indeed. The first book to lay bare the less than saintly behavior of thirty-two venerated holy men and women, it presents the scandalous, spicy, and sleazy detours they took on the road to sainthood. Written with wit and respect (each profile ends with what inspired the saint to give up his wicked ways), Saints Behaving Badly will entertain, inform, and even inspire readers interested in the varied twists and turns of those who have gone before on the road to sanctity.
