Overview

James Martin has led an entirely modern life: from a lukewarm Catholic childhood, to an education at the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to ministry as a Jesuit priest, to a busy media career in Manhattan. But every step of the way, he has been accompanied by some surprising friends-the saints of the Catholic Church. Martin's best-selling memoir encompasses saints throughout Christian history-from St. Peter to Dorothy Day, St. Francis of Assisi to Mother Teresa-and chronicles the author's lifelong relationship with them. His witty, vibrant, and stirring stories enable readers to discover how the saints guide us throughout our earthly journeys and how they help each of us find holiness in our own lives.

A remarkable approach to autobiography written with the focus centered on spiritual mentors, the saints and near saints. Refreshing and inviting invitation to a deeper kmowledge of God through His human creation. In a word, inspiring!

I have now read two of his books, and they are GREAT. His third is about to come out, and I can't wait!! Fr. Martin has an awesome realistic and practical approach to living a Christian life. Then he teaches some very interesting history in a very relate-able way, all as he also shares his unusual life journey. And he has a GREAT sense of humor! I had the pleasure of hearing him speak before I had read any of the books, and he seems just exactly as he portrays himself in print. I hope he keeps writing. He and his books are a joy and a blessing!
