This book is not for those looking for biographical information -- although Father John Dear does include some biographical details about the lives of those included. Rather, this book is for those who want to reflect on the examples of nonviolence that these individuals provided with their lives. Simply written, beautifully illustrated with icons, this book is very much a devotional work -- one that reminds us how to reflect God's love into the world.

10 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on June 7, 2006
Format: Paperback
You Will Be My Witnesses: Saints, Prophets, And Martyrs by Jesuit priest, pastor and peacemaker John Dear is an outstanding contribution to the inspirational role of Catholic saints and the remarkable influence contributed by their life examples and spiritual influences with respect to members of the Catholic community. Knowledgeably depicting a Catholic saints ranging from Miguel Pro, Mary, John the Baptist, and Maria of Olonets, to Clare, Philip Berrigan, Gemma Galgani, Andrew and so many others, You Will Be My Witnesses informatively presents a succinct yet thorough biographically oriented understanding and concise description of each identified and cited saint. Impressively enhanced with full color illustrations of the saints, You Will Be My Witnesses is very strongly recommended as a wonderful contribution to the reference libraries of Catholic clergy or laity.

Another beautiful book featuring the icons of Father Bill McNichols along with informative, inspiring text by peace activist Father John Dear. The authors present a chronological selection of historical and contemporary saints beginning with Mary, John the Baptist, and Mary Magdalene and including both well known and obscure figures such as Saint Francis of Assisi, St. Clare, and Bernadette of Lourdes. Among contemporary saints are Dorothy Day, Jean Donovan, Philip Berrigan and Mychal Judge. Throughout the text Father Dear weaves his persistent theme of radical non-violence, peace and love, and highlights how the Apostles, martyrs, saints and prophets put Christ's teachings into practice in their daily lives. Father Bill's wonderful icons, grounded in Orthodox tradition and infused with his own unique vision, add immeasurably to this gorgeous book. Highly recommended.
