About the Edition

A collection of thirteen profiles of some very remarkable people whose lives have special meaning for us today. Each of these men and women has overcome great odds, great obstacles, both physically and spiritually, to attain that unique status known as sainthood. Until recently, it seemed as if there were no place for the lives of the saints. People were too busy to look back, too harried to take the time to draw strength from the stories of those who had gone before. Today, all that has changed. People are looking for models to emulate, to look up to, and they can be found in these short, direct, and pithily written biographies of thirteen saints. (dust jacket)
