This is a great book! Feb 1, 2006
As a homeschooling family with 6 children, this book has been used frequently. It is a classic. Fr. Lovasik carefully, and concisely, relates the stories of true Christian heros. The illustrations on every page are lovely. This book inspires readers to live the virtues of faith, hope, and charity. Our children have enjoyed this book immensely. It also makes a great gift.
Pretty Interesting Book... Jun 10, 2005
I'm not catholic but this book is really neat.It has information & nice illustraitions of over 100 saints. Even though I don't pray to the saints or ask for them to intercede for me,it's just inspiring to read about these martyrs,angels,priests,nuns,monks,& a lot of others who lived a godly life.
