Here is a book about saints that people today can relate to and understand. Their bravery and holiness will inspire anyone. Their stories will bring you to tears and bring out a greater love for God in one's heart. Written spectacularly and with wonderful pictures.Was this review helpful?

This book will touch your heart...and soul.
In my humble opinion, Ann Ball is one of the best contemporary Catholic authors. In 'Modern Saints: Their Lives and Faces' (both volumes 1 & 2), she does a marvelous job of presenting the lives of many saints, blesseds, and holy people in an edifying and inspiring manner. No 'plaster saints' here, but human beings that struggled...and were victorious. The photographs alone manage to bring the point home. Yet even without them, Ann Ball's great talent as a writer would be enough to encourage the reader to immitate these beautiful souls.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
