Overview
Provides brief stories from the lives of forty Christian saints of the first millenium.

Publishers Description
Saints: Lives and Illuminations presents the stories of forty remarkable people--martyrs, hermits, miracle workers, scholars, and evangelists--who were the pioneers of the early Church and who spread the Christian faith to the rest of the world. This book will introduce children and adults to some of the important saints of the first millennium, when the Western Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church were still united as one Church. With brief biographical sketches and lush pencil and oil portraits, author and illustrator Ruth Sanderson stokes the flame of our centuries-old interest in the faith and lives of these saints who have forever changed the way we look at and live our lives in relationship to God.

sweetly innocent and charming illuminations  Nov 10, 2004
The illustrations are sweetly innocent and charming, but somehow neither holy nor inspiring (the best one is the cover).
The descriptions of the different saints are quite interesting, and although they include the details of how the different saints died, it would be a matter of how you raise your children that decides you on this book.
Example on Saint Catherine:
"Catherine was tied between great spiked wheels, but it is said that lightning struck the wheel and saved her from this torture. Catherine was then beheaded, and milk, not blood, flowed from her body. "
I suppose that one of the cornerstones of Saints & martyrs being declared is the manner of their death, therefore it is relevant.
