This book shares the life stories of 150 individuals canonized into sainthood who were committed to vegetarianism.
Many were of Eastern origin, living as meditative, contemplative sages, others were martyrs, and still others - mystics.
Each life story has a distinct message and the potential to further peace upon our planet.

I have this wonderful book. As a Catholic and vegetarian, this book is invaluable. Dr. Roberts did extensive research and found 150 Saints, Monks, and Mystics. It would be a great book to send to our new Pope Francis! St. Francis is in this book as a vegetarian. We need to be compassionate towards God's creatures. There are many theologies floating around about our relationship with animals and someday we will be held accountable for every one. (Hebrews 4:13) Jan, Founder, God's Creatures Ministry ps. I met Dr. Roberts and she is a lovely, humble lady.
TO FOLLOW THIS LIFESTYLE IS MUCH HEALTHIER BOTH SPIRITUALLY AND PHYSICALLY. I'VE BEEN EDUCATED IN A VERY FULFILLING WAY. THANKS TO THIS BOOK BY DR. HOLLY ROBERTS. I RECOMMEND IT.
