Overview

David Brown engages the question of the role of saints in modern life head on: are they an irrelevance? Brown tells the story of the Church across the centuries through some thirty examples of saints, Protestant no less then Catholic. Because many of them faced dilemmas much more like our own then those of Jesus, their very human wrestlings can continue to help us in our own spiritual pilgrimage. Three more general chapters explain how giving them a special place, far from diminishing Christ, actually secures and enhances his meaning.
