As a catholic I'm glad that Wyatt North is publishing the biography of the Church Saints. This is a well written book, with an excellent introduction and a very handy interactive table of contents. It is inspiring to read the biographies of this two powerful saints that left an unforgettable mark In the history of the Church. The contrast between the humble Francis and the miracles worker St. Anthony is fascinating to read. I highly recommend this book to Christians of all denominations.

The Lives and Prayers of Catholic Saints: Volume I (Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Anthony of Padua)gives us the biographies of two of the Church's greatest saints in a book that is comprehensive but still quick and easy to read.Both lived lives of austerity and simplicity that are still examples for us today in a world where we are constantly advised that we need a newer and better version of everything we own.

They were contemporaries, St. Francis (1182-1226) was founder of the Franciscan order and St Anthony (1195-1231) joined the Franciscan order in 1220. Besides giving us the details of their lives as preachers, teachers, and miracle workers the book also gives us a glimpse of their childhoods and families.

The book contains prayers written by both saints and prayers to them. The prayer Instrument of Your Peace by St Francis is one of the most widely quoted prayers ever. And of course everyone prays to St Anthony when something is lost.
This is another excellent book by Wyatt North.

What a great biography on two of the most important individuals to the Catholic Church. Inspiring facts will lead readers closer to these two men. Learn the prayers written by these men and use them to help you develop a stronger faith with you.

The Lives and Prayers of Catholic Saints series is a great way to learn about many of the Catholic Saints, both their lives and prayers they wrote or used during their lifetime. This volume about St. Francis of Assissi and St. Anthony of Padua is no exception. I look forward to many more books in this series in the future. Thank you to Wyatt North for realizing the hole that needed filled.

As a non-Catholic the lives of the traditional saints are not well known to me, even thought their names and vague reputations are. This filled in the gaps a bit for me, especially for Francis. The process and validity of the canonization process,especially in the far past, is still strange to a modern Protestant but this was a good
Primer on some of the ways it was done long ago.

Another great book by Wyatt North! I find it important to learn about common people who have done extraordinary efforts in their lives to serve others, especially those in great need. It helps one keep focused in an otherwise material and relativity-filled world. Thank you, WN!

Easy to understand. Some books on religion can be rather abstract & hard to read. I enjoyed learning about the life each Saint. As a child, whenever I could not find something, my Mother used to always say "Pray to Saint Anthony, he'll help you". While reading this book, I lost my best reading glasses for a few days. Searching the house, including multiple times under the chair & cushions with no luck. Upon getting to the section on St. Anthony, I reached down through the cushion once more. My hand immediately found the missing spectacles! What??? Wow, moms are smart!

This book (Volume 1 in the Lives and Prayers of Catholic Saints)is a fine introduction to the Series. Each book is a combination biography/anthology, and you will find yourself re-reading the biography, but more often returning to the collection of Prayers written by each Saint. Saint Francis, of course, is widely known and studied, but I was really impressed also by the Prayers of St. Anthony.
Very beautiful. I think you will read and return to them often, as I do....
