Synopsis

Saints Lives and Illuminations by Ruth Sanderson

From well-known saints like Patrick and Francis of Assisi to such lesser-known figures as Saint Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino, this volume brings together for the first time all of the saint stories in Ruth Sanderson s two previous books, Saints and More Saints, now presented in combined picture book format. Each of the saints featured -- over 70 in all -- is presented through a beautiful detailed portrait page paired with a brief biographical sketch, which includes dates, feast days, and patronage. The book also features an introduction detailing the process of becoming a saint, a list of additional resources, and a glossary offering readers deeper insight into the historical and religious context of the saints lives. Readers of all ages will be inspired and informed by the stories of these remarkable men and women who have provided spiritual examples to Christians from the very beginning of the church up to the present day.

Reviews

A book as beautifully illuminated, designed and printed as this artistic testimony to the lives of 40 saints from the first millennium drawn from the eastern and western churches will be treasured by all who find comfort and courage in their company. Done in pencil and oil on paper, the attractive full-page presentation of picture and text will delight young and older alike. Prairie Messenger Forty stories of Christian saints from the first millennium are illustrated with appropriately gorgeous, pencil-and-oils-on-paper art. Kirkus Reviews This compilation of saints almost feels like a throwback to another era. . . . Each saint gets a lovely oil-and-pencil portrait that takes up a third of the page and an overview of his or her life. Booklist Opulently illustrated. . . . For those interested in sharing inspiring stories of Christian devotion with children, this volume is well designed, attractive, and easy to use. School Library Journal
