DESCRIPTION

As exciting as any Greek myth, as inspiring as any story about knights of the round table, these stories of the Christian saints are filled with history, adventure, and inspiration. Here, the lives of 70 Christian saints are organized chronologically (from 2nd century bishop St. Polycarp to Mother Teresa) and richly illustrated. 

From Augustine to Mother Teresa, officially canonized as St. Teresa of Calcutta, discover seventy of the best-known and best-loved saints and read their riveting stories.

  • Francis of Assisi, whose gentleness tamed a man-eating wolf. 
  • Valentine, a bishop in the time of ancient Rome, who spoke so often of Christ's love that his saint's day in February, has been associated with courtly love since the Middle Ages.
  • St. Thomas Aquinas, the great teacher.
  • Peter Claver, who cared for hundreds of thousands of people on slave ships after their voyage as captives.
  • And Bernadette, whose vision of Mary instructed her to dig the spring that became the healing waters of Lourdes.

Each saint is illustrated in a dramatic and stylized full-color portrait, and included in every entry are the saint's dates, location, emblems, feast days, and patronage. Taken together, these stories create a rich, inspiring, and entertaining collection of tales about people who have become legends.
