Item description for Saint Joseph: His Life and His Role in the Church Today by Louise Perrotta...
Overview What can you say about a man who is mentioned only a handful of times in Scripture, and then only as a supporting actor in the drama featuring Jesus and Mary? Much more than myth and legend would have you believe. Now, the real Joseph of Nazareth emerges from behind the fanciful tales that have dominated many earlier works, This is not a pallid icon gazing at a lily, but a rugged, flesh-and-blood contractor deeply in love with his wife, passionately devoted to his Son, skilled at his work, and completely dedicated to God's will. Key Distinguishing Features * Introduces the real Joseph, the man behind the myths * Explores the devotions and traditions associated with Joseph * Looks at the importance of Joseph"s relationship to both Jesus and Mary * Provides what may be the best biography of Joseph ever written

GREAT BOOK! Aug 25, 2007
I just read this book while I was on retreat and I went and ordered some for my parish which is St. Joseph in Erie PA. If you want a GREAT book on St. Joseph get this one. It is very insightful and very practical. If you do not love St. Joseph now, you will after you read this book!
