A wonderful contribution to the reference libraries of Catholic clergy or laity Jun 7, 2006
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.
Beautiful and Inspiring May 1, 2006
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.
