Item Description...
For more than 2,000 years, the legends and stories of the lives of the Christian saints have had great influence worldwide. This collection of 22 of the most enduring and loved saints brings them to life through iconography, art, and story. Each profile includes a biography with canonization, patronage, and feast dates througout the world, as well as prayers both to and about the saint.

Publishers Description
Journey through time as "Saints" reveals the wonder and power of God through full color illustrations, images and inspirational prayers.

For more than two thousand years, the Christian saints have had great influence worldwide. They lived full, passionate lives and remain compelling examples of God's work here on Earth. Now, this new, inspiring collection of biographies reveals the legendary stories, little-known facts, and inspiring beliefs of some of the best-loved saints.

"Saints" explores a select group of these individuals whose influence can be felt profoundly in the modern day. Each profile includes a biography with patronage and feast dates throughout the world, along with prayers both to and about each saint. These saints inspired countless classic artworks and you'll also learn the symbols used to identify each.

From the patience of Saint Joseph and independence of Saint Ursula, to the boldness of Saint Joan of Arc and the love of Saint Pio, God's grace and power is made evident to us all. Despite the tumultuous times in which these saints lived, they remained uniquely themselves on the path to holiness, making this collection especially real and relevant today. Whether you aspire to follow in the footsteps of the saints, or just want to learn more about these men and women, you'll find Saints a stimulating read and the perfect gift for others.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Their most stunning and relevant book yet.  Mar 21, 2007
I wasn't raised in a church that honored the saints and it was my curiosity about how they became woven into even our secular daily lives that first led me to the work of duo Barbara Calamari and Sandra DiPasqua. I have since collected all of their books and this one by far is the most stunning of their collaboration, and most relevant to my life. The design of the book - clever layering of bold graphics and exquisite portraits - is deserving of an award. Their selection of saints is fresh and translates well to the 21st century. The section on modern saints spoke most directly to me. Reading about the brilliant philosopher Edith Stein, aka Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, moved me. Born a Jew, she declared herself an atheist and dedicated herself to the study of philosophy. Later, her thirst for God led her to convert to Catholicism, but ironically, she was martyred in 1942 at Auschwitz for being born a Jew. Lives such as these make even non-believers assess the passivity of their own walks through life. These were extraordinarily intelligent and/or strong people of faith who became powerful solution-oriented leaders of their times. I anticipate that the friends and family I give this book to will be inspired by the saints' tenacity and altruism. Even if we are not destined to be leaders, at the very least we can begin to respond to the many opportunities we are given to make life for those who cross our own paths better. A beautiful book to get us started!
