This year I have been interested in the saints, but I didn't know where to start looking for a book that was informative without being intimidating. A friend gave me this book for my birthday, and I immediately knew I had the introduction I was wanting. The stories of seventy saints are divided into ten categorical chapters -- from the Apostles to the Healers to the Renouncers. Each chapter then has an informative description of the lives of several saints. All of the biographical information is concise yet thoughtful. It is a delight to read. Much of this pales when compared to the quality of the book itself. This book is nicely bound, with beautiful detailing. The artwork is astounding and enhances the biographical content. The layout is consistent, which is more than can be said for many modern books. I just don't think I can recommend this book highly enough for someone who wants to learn more about saints without purchasing an enormous tome. My only dilemna is whether to put it on my coffee table or in my study. D-13
