Editorial Reviews

Review

“An invaluable guide to models of holiness for every time and place. Everyone can find a soul friend here.” (Thomas H. Groome, Boston College)

“With characteristic authority, McBrien offers not just a rich calendar of saints butprofiles in courage, love, and spiritual wisdom.” (Robert Ellsberg, author of All Saints: Daily Reflections on Saints, Prophets, and Witnesses for Our Time)

“Worth its weight in gold...a gift from the author.” (St. Anthony Messenger)

“Provides the quality otherwise found only in the 12-volume, 1995 Burns edition of Butler’s Lives of the Saints.” (America)

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By L. Pellegrini on February 23, 2008
Format: Paperback
I purchased the Pocket Guide to the Saints to take with me on a trip to Italy. We have visited before and are not Catholic. Much of the art has its roots in religious stories related to the Saints and we wanted to know more.

This book is helpful, but could be organized better. Rather than an alphabetical organization, it is organized by "saint days" (I'm not sure that that is the correct phrasing). It would be much simpler if we could look each saint up by his/her name.

The information provided is perfect for our interest. There is a short biographical entry including stories that related to the person's canonization. We are leaving in March and I look forward to being able to have this book as a reference while we visit museums and churches in Italy.
