Reviews - What do customers think about Modern Saints: Their Lives and Faces, Book 1?

great reading  May 15, 2007
I have read all of Ann Ball's books on the saints and enjoyed this book and the second book by the same name the most. Understanding their history and the context for the saints lives and beliefs helped me to understand that sainthood is attainable. There were excellent photos of many of the saints which brought them, as individuals, alive. The only frustration I had with the book is that some of the information about individual saints is very sparse and left me, like a small bowl of popcorn, wanting more!
I am only sorry that there are no more of her books left for me to read.
 
Terrific Collection of Saint Stories  Mar 20, 2004
This is the first source I'd recommend for teenagers or adults wanting to learn more about real people who have been declared Saint or Blessed by the Church.

Both volumes of this set focus on "Modern Saints" (of the past 150 years or so) and each story is complemented by photographs of the Saint - reinforcing the truth that the Saints aren't just about ancient history, but were living, breathing people just like us. They each struggled with challenges and difficulties of their own time and place, but each have experiences and make choices that are relevant to us today.

Inspirational  May 11, 1998
Each chapter is a synopsis of the life of a Catholic saint or venerable person who lived some time in the last few centuries. Photos of almost every saint are included. This is a great introduction to some modern saints, and will certainly challenge us with examples of holiness in the modern world.
