Reviews - What do our customers think?
Humorous and good natured  Oct 12, 2007
in answer to those who rate the book with one star and didn't "know or realize" it was humorous. one must always be critical, with eyes open, but never cynical. that's what this book is, along with being good natured. btw, such reviewers takes themselves too seriously. as hagiographies go, this book offsets all "serious" and humourless "instructional" books.
Saints Preserve Us!  Jul 24, 2007
It's a great little book. It has more infomation about the Saints than you thought to ask. It's only slightly irreverant in spots, the rest is just interesting information and you find yourself reading it out loud..."Hey everyone, listen to this..." I was disappointed that all of the Saints are listed and then what they are patron of, how they were martered, etc. It would have been nice to be able to look up the topic that they were Patron Saints of, maybe an index or something. As it is you have to read through the Saints in alphabetical order to find what they are the Patron of. All in all, I give it a thumbs up.
yeah its funny but i wish they researched more  Apr 22, 2005
I can understand the humor the authors were trying to put into the book but in truth I really wish they knew what they were talking about. For example: the patron saint of young girls is not who they say - its Saint Agnes and or Saint Joan of Arc. They have a Saint Bessa in their book, there isn't a saint bessa. I double checked everything against a REAL saints book. There is a Saints Bessas but the stories aren't even simiular.

Like I said, I understand where the humor is coming from but so much of their information is made up is what made me laugh. But in truth it was just sad that the authors showed their ignorance and how into themselves by writting this book and thinking they can make changes where there is none needed and that they know more then anyone who actually has read any other saint book on the shelves. So many of the Patrons are mislabel and quite a few made up it, it was just sad. I mean, how can you not even say Saint. Joan of Arc is the patron of anything?
Funny & informative, but not for the extremely reverent  Oct 8, 2004
As some of the previous reviews have indicated, this is not exactly an appropriate book for 1) those who take their saints VERY seriously; and 2) those who are trying to educate their youngsters about the lives of saints. Addressing the second group, I might point out that the only times I have seen this book in bookstores it was shelved in the humor section rather than the religion section, and that in itself should be a pretty clue. I suppose some libraries might shelve this in the religion section, but a quick perusal ought to reveal the gentle irreverence found throughout the book.

For those Catholics who enjoy laughing at some of the more admittedly absurd aspects of Church history, this book will be a real hoot. It is in no way definitive, but it does have an impressive number of rather obscure saints listed. There is humor aplenty to be found here, but one will also at times encounter some rather incisive commentary on how the Church infrastructure has developed over the centuries, and also on some of the politics that is sometimes involved in the canonization process.

As a reference guide it has its limits, but if you just need the basics (patron saints for nations & professions, which saints you should invoke for which ailments, and which saints get which days) this book does a pretty good job of covering what you might need.

Remember to avoid this book like the plague if your religious sensibilities are easily offended. You have been warned.
Informative but....  Sep 3, 2004
I am so glad that I checked this book out from the library rather than buying it.

Although this book was informative the dry wit they inserted into nearly every saint's bio was not needed and not welcomed by me. A little humor is a good thing and I love a good dose of dry wit, but to poke fun at saints is another thing altogether.

Usually the prospective buyer of a book about saints is looking for strength, guidance and help. They don't want to read sarcastic comments on each saint.

If you are someone that is looking for a good and informative book on saints you might be disappointed in the authors' attitude as I was.
