For more than two centuries, Butler's Lives of the Saints has been hailed as the authority on the Christian patron saints. Now, in this new edition of the original classic, Michael Walsh has culled the ruch resources of earlier editions to accentuate the more modern and best-documented saints. Echoing the charm and style of the eighteenth-century edition, Walsh's volume has been edited to make the fascinating and inspiring lives of the saints easily accessible to readers today. This edition features saints from many nations and backgrounds and includes new articles on recently canonized saints. The index offers the list of saints from the complete edition, and includes all new canonizations and new dates, making it eh most up-to-date listing of saints available. Butlter's Lives of the Saints remains a remarkable reference source and, through its comprehensive biographies, a valuable aid to devotion and a rich source of historical information.

From the Inside Flap:

This new concise Butler?s provides an essay on one saint for each day of the month, using the twelve-volume full edition of Butler?s Lives of the Saints as a source. Selections are made from both categories of ?Saint? and ?Blessed??canonized and beatified, allowing for the increasing proportion of women and of new- and third-world holy people. Completely rewritten in a popular style, this volume also has more ?spiritual? appeal than the full edition. A prayer and intercessory reflection is included after each entry, which lend themselves to family or small-group meditation as well as to individual devotion. The volume also suggests baptismal/confirmation names for the day?s commemorations or for inclusion in prayers.?They surround us; walking alongside us. They have gone before us; calling us forward. A great cloud of witnesses: the saints, and those called ?blessed.? Pondering the new concise edition of Butler?s Lives of the Saints day by day, week by week, season by season, we participate more fully in the grand communion of these friends of God and prophets and, together with them, share in the divine life?even now.? Michael Downey, Editor The New Dictionary of Catholic Spirituality
