The Beloved, Authoritative Guide To The Christian Saints - Now Concise And Updated For Today's Reader
There is no greater authority on the saints than Fr. Alban Butler. His enormous research has been the standard reference on the subject for the last two and a half centuries. This new single volume adaptation presents Butler's beloved work in today's language.
Butler's daily readings give us a unique opportunity to engage directly with these great figures of faith. Turning attention away from the superhuman, miraculous themes that are prevalent in earlier works, Butler gives us saints who are examples of Christian living and circumstance. As Butler writes: "They were once what we are now, travelers on earth. They had the same weaknesses we have. We have difficulties; so had the saints."
