Overview

SAINTS OF CIRCUMSTANCE – ebook summary and author bio

Evelyn Adams is a student of Christ, having studied religious history, philosophy and Catholic theology over many, many years. She attends mass three to four times per week and co-sponsors a monthly rosary at her home parish. This is her first e-book on this subject. Adams is a life-long Catholic with strong opinions about faith and how it is viewed in the world today.

“Certain intellectuals (literary and the like, dead and/or alive) make you feel as if you’re a babbling idiot, uneducated and clueless, for believing in Jesus Christ and God,” Adams says. “The hubris existing in this self-indulgent, me society we live in is causing a great deal of personal strife, question, and confusion about God, Jesus, and their roles in our lives. The lives of the saints can bring us back to a place where we put our faith and moral dignity at the forefront of our lives, projecting positive, holy energy out into the world. Paradise is obtainable here on earth, Jesus explains in the Gospels—but only if we give faith the opportunity to truly exist and work in our lives. In a cynical age, heroes are in great need. The saints can fill that role.”

Please understand that this book is about 40 manuscript pages long and about 12,300 words in total. It is not intended to be a full-length book. Adams spent several years researching this piece. Reader interest will determine if Evelyn Adams publishes a second volume.

The narrative in this first volume covers two saints, St. Maria Goretti and St. Giovanna Beretta Molla. There is a bonus chapter on “The Power of Prayer” and an essay about the dangers of lust.

Evelyn Adams hopes this short ebook will inspire the faithful and non-faithful to pray with more vigor and passion for our Lord, while understanding that the rewards of heaven can be achieved on earth, suffice it to say if we choose to accept the gifts Christ left us, adhere to His Word, and put in the work it takes to fulfill the promises of the Father.

Part of the proceeds from this e-book will go to a foodbank near Evelyn Adams’s place of residence.
