I bought this book because it contained the stories of some of the saints that I have grown to love, especially St. Joseph of Cupertino, the Flying Friar. Here was a man whom nobody wanted; not even his parents. But God wanted him and showered him with graces all his lonely life. I think that it is the love of God that drew me to this book; God's love for the seemingly unlovable, and their love for Him. Stories of such transformations that they could only be of God. It is a book to feed the soul.

Saints for Sinners details 9 saints who struggled in the spiritual life, and as such are good examples for those who would like to follow in their footsteps. The 9 saints profiled are:

-St. Augustine of Hippo (The Restless Soul)
-St. Margaret of Cortona (The Second Magdalene)
-St. John of God (The Waif)
-St. Francis Xavier (The "Failure")
-St. John of the Cross (The Prisoner)
-St. Camillus de Lellis (The Gambler)
-St. Joseph of Cupertino (The Dunce)
-St. Claude de la Colombiere (The Interior Martyr)
-St. Benedict Joseph Labre (The Beggar)

The chapters detailing the saints' lives speak of a "bottoming out" of each saint, and how they came to rely on Christ and the Church to lift them up. My personal favorite was the chapter on St. Camillus, as it is told that he had a bit of a temper that he struggled with all his life.

This book should not be taken as "Gospel Truth" about the saints' lives, as each chapter has a bit of fancy woven in with their story; but it is extremely well-written and allows a person to delve more deeply into a saint's life and to spur the reader into finding out more about the saint and to emulate their life.
