Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Saints have typically been figures from the distant past, canonized for miraculous lives of perfection and self-denial. Orbis editor-in-chief Ellsberg here redefines this stereotype in this diverse and substantial compendium of the lives of men and women, ancient and contemporary, who gave themselves completely to their vocations. Well-known saints, apostles, and martyrs take their place beside lesser-known figures the woman with a flow of blood who touched Jesus' hem, theologians and philosophers e.g., Martin Buber, Simone Weil, Kierkegaard, artists Van Gogh, Mozart, J.S. Bach, literary figures Dante, Tolstoy, social reformers Gandhi, Schweitzer, and numerous others who do not fit into neat categories. A different figure is introduced for each day of the year to coincide with feast days or birth/death dates, and helpful biographical sources are provided.

    A book for the Serious reader of Spiritual Literature!

    This book should be part of every reader's collection. The wonderful collection of the lives portrayed is very inspiring and leads to true contemplation. Though 'saint' is mostly applied in a Catholic setting, I like the collection of 'saints', both Christian and non-Christian alike. As a spiritual director and teacher of religion, I have found this book very useful in my ministry.
