    an excellent reference in placing saints in a biblical time reference

    As a lifelong Catholic, I have heard the Litany of the Saints recited on All Saints Day and at other liturgical celebrations, however I really did not understand who these Saints were and how they fit in with events and time lines in the Bible. I learned more in one two hour reading of Doyle-Nelson's book about these 48 Biblical personalities than I ever did in 67 years of lectures and sermons. I really liked the "spreadsheet on pages 105 to 108 that lists the Saint, the meaning of the Saint's name, the feast day, patronage and biblical reference.

    This is a great book for parents and grandparents to give to and discuss with their children and grandchildren. It is also a great book to be used in parish Christian Education classes or bible study classes. It is easy to ready, short and to the point and is a great reference text.

    Saints of the Bible

    I am a convert to the Catholic faith, and the few months spent in preparation for the Rite of Christian Initiation did not include much about the lives of the saints. So, when I was asked to choose a patron saint for my Confirmation, the Saints of the Bible were the ones with whom I was most familiar.

    I had always been taught in the Protestant denominations whose services I attended that the Word of God was Sola Scriptura, but I have learned through the Catholic faith that the lives of the saints testify to God's goodness and mercy just as much as Scripture does. Without the Church tradition we would lose much of the richness of these saints' stories as the Bible mentions many of their names only briefly. Theresa Doyle-Nelson, in her book "Saints of the Bible" has combined the scriptural evidence with the stories passed down for nearly two millennia by the traditions of the Catholic Church. She reminds us that each of these characters, with roles important enough to be mentioned alongside the life of Christ, has a rich tale of conversion and each exemplifies a life that was changed by their deep faith in Jesus. They give us hope that as Jesus enters our lives, we can be similarly changed.

    Doyle-Nelson gives common ground to those who believe that Scripture is the sole source of authority and those of us who draw from the deposit of faith passed to us from the Apostles. We can all agree that these saints' tales of conversion, witness, and sacrifice are examples to us all.

    Doyle-Nelson's book is a concise, well-organized reference that is straight-forward enough for beginner students of the saints, but informative enough that even more experienced students of Scripture and the lives of the saints will find some surprises. It is conveniently organized by date, so you can easily reference it all year long as you study Scripture alongside these "holy men and women".

    I would definitely recommend buying this book for adult Catechumens and Candidates, as well as high-school youth in preparation for Confirmation. It may even be a nice gift for Protestant friends who have questions about Catholicism and its teaching and traditions.

    I was especially touched by the last entry in the book which describes the slaughter of the Holy Innocents by King Herod the Great. It resonates deeply with the current issue of abortion in our country and in our world today.

    Delightful holy examples

    The saints are beacons for us to learn to live a holy life more wholly. Theresa Doyle-Nelson has given me motivating stories to learn to live by. The short, informative, real-to-MY-life accounts help me to know following our Lord is a daily practice with many examples to follow. All of these saints come to us from the pages of scripture; several of them are names I might simply breeze over. Mrs. Nelson has researched and presented these saints in clear language, giving me a glimpse into their holy lives that I might follow their example. I am grateful for the scripture verses given for each saint and the chart to quickly locate the patronage and feast day of the saints in this book. Thank you, Mrs. Nelson, for this inspiring book! I hope you will publish more!
