The Times Book of Saints

 
9780007127382: The Times Book of Saints

An incredibly valuable guide to the best known saints, imaginatively presented so as to offer as many ways into the lives of these saints as possible.

A total of 365 saints are featured here, but this is far more than a daily devotional book. Each entry has a summary of the saint’s life and work but the truly distinctive feature is the addition in every case of extracts from the saint’s own writings, so that today’s reader can really hear the voice of the saint coming through.

The organisation of the book is such that it can be used in five different ways. It can, if desired, be used as a daily readings book. But in addition, the entries are arranged alphabetically, so that it functions as a dictionary; the entries can be followed in historical order, with each entry indicating the previous and next saints in that order; and there are both a calendar of saints and a full thematic index at the beginning of the book, so that they can be accessed by saints day or topic as well.

Thus this well-known US Catholic author has achieved a truly adaptable work which will prove invaluable within the Catholic world and beyond, with a wide general appeal to Christians of all hues and in the general market also, particularly given the backing of The Times.
