Robert Atwell is Vicar of Primrose Hill, London, where he resides. He is also the compiler of Celebrating the Seasons (2000).
Christopher L. Webber is an Episcopal priest who has served inner city, suburban, and overseas parishes. He is the author of many books including Welcome to the Episcopal Church: An Introduction to Its History, Faith, and Worship (1999), and The Vestry Handbook, Revised Edition (1999).From Library Journal:
This new collection on the subject of the saints is the latest in a very considerable outpouring of publications on holy men and women. Compilers Robert Atwell and Christopher Webber's assemblage is distinguished from many others by its breadth, generosity of range, and literacy, not least the attention it gives to the eloquence of the saints themselves. So, this devotional includes not only the usual procession of medieval bishops but South African evangelists, Methodist hymnodists, and Catholic educators, complete with often fascinating, and revelatory, quotations from the saints and their admirers. For most collections.
