About a man whose faith left its mark on history Sep 6, 2002
Written by Joyce Dunham and nicely illustrated by Diana Mayo, Patrick: Saint Of Ireland is an ideal picturebook biography introducing young readers to the life of Patrick, Ireland's patron saint who returned to the land of his captivity preaching a message of Christian love and faith. Presenting the three-leafed shamrock as a metaphor for the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Trinity of God, Patrick spread his teachings despite opposition from those who worshiped pagan gods. A powerful rendition of a man whose faith left its mark on history and a highly recommended addition to family and parochial school library collections.
