Product Description

From well-known saints like Patrick and Francis of Assisi to such lesser known figures as Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino, this volume gathers together all of Ruth Sanderson's beautifully illustrated saint stories - over 70 in all - from Saints and More Saints into a comprehensive paperback edition.

Each of the saints is presented through a beautiful detailed portrait paired with a brief biographical sketch, which includes dates, feast days, and patronage information. The book also features an introduction detailing the process of becoming a saint, a list of additional resources, and a glossary offering readers deeper insight into the historical and religious context of the saints' lives. Readers of all ages will be inspired by the stories of these remarkable men and women who have provided spiritual examples to Christians from the very beginning of the church up to the present day.

“A book as beautifully illuminated, designed and printed as this artistic testimony to the lives of 40 saints from the first millennium drawn from the eastern and western churches will be treasured by all who find comfort and courage in their company. Done in pencil and oil on paper, the attractive full-page presentation of picture and text will delight young and older alike.”
