Product Description

Saints: Lives and Illuminations tells the stories of over seventy remarkable men and women who have provided spiritual examples to Christians from the very beginning of the church up to the present day. In addition to well-known saints like Patrick and Francis of Assisi, this volume also explores the lives of such lesser-known figures as Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino.

With biographical sketches and beautiful, detailed portraits, author-illustrator Ruth Sanderson appeals to our persistent fascination with these saints who have lived out their faith in profound and dramatic ways.

For the first time, all of the saints featured in Sanderson's two earlier works, Saints and More Saints, are brought together into a lovely small-format edition that will make a perfect gift for readers of all ages.
