Description


While there are many books on saints, this one is different. Keeping in mind the questions he has been asked by people over the years, George Evans has written a book in popular question-and-answer format that treats not only the saints' existence, place, and functions, but also the kind of honor given to them in the Church's liturgy and life. The author treats such topics as beatification and canonization; hagiography, the study of the lives of the saints; and the role of saints in art. An informational text as well as a book to pick up now and then for entertaining reading, this book offers readers a deeper sense of why the saints and the honoring of them has been influential in the lives of Catholics and others who strive to follow Jesus Christ and experience his love. It is a happy medium between the scholarly and devotional books that are its competition. +
