Overview

Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints, Revised by Matthew Bunson

These are the men, women, and children whose heroic virtue -- whose example of faith, hope, and love -- proves that spiritual greatness on earth is possible. Here are their lives and their stories, simply, clearly, and accurately told. Updated to include canonizations of the third millennium, Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints, Revised, presents the most comprehensive one-volume listing of saints and "beati" -- the "blessed" who are one step from canonization. Here, too, are explanations of the Catholic Church's teaching on the Communion of Saints and its tradition of veneration. Here, in alphabetical order, are the biographies of nearly the whole body of those revered as saints throughout the world. For the young student or the serious scholar, for the person who is simply curious or the committed Christian looking for inspiration, there is no other book like Our Sunday Visitor's Encyclopedia of Saints, Revised.
