Item description for Saints and Non-Saints: Some Saintly and Not-So-Saintly Figures from Church History by Christa Gingery Habbeger...
Overview Most of us know them only from church names and grotesque figures in classic paintings and stained-glass windows. But who were these people dubbed "saints"? What are the facts behind the legends, the real human beings with all the weaknesses common to mankind who somehow made their mark in history as holy men and women? This book digs into the sense and nonsense in the lives and legends of 15 famous saints, ranging from larger-then-life figures like Augustine to shadowy legends like Nicholas and Valentine. Some were saints in the biblical sense - they knew Christ as their personal Savior - while others were merely religious by human standards. All, however, are fascinating personalities whose careers have profound lessons to teach us.
