Reviews - What do customers think about Women Saints: Lives of Faith and Courage?
A superb survey of female Saints down through time. Mar 3, 2000
Women Saints deserves ongoing mention as an inspiring survey of female saints in a subject partial to men. Headings from 'visionaries' to 'martyrs' and 'penitents' provide themes for lives which cover all centuries and cultures. Highly recommended.
