Reviews - What do customers think about All Saints: Daily Reflections on Saints, Prophets, and Witnesses for Our Time?

Amazing book  Jun 3, 2008
This book is a treasure. Each day bios a 'saint', many of whom lived, served and died in obscurity. Some can be found in the Christian Bible and some in the following centuries, but all were followers of God. Many are not officially recognized by any religious group, but all belong to the glorious heritage of God's people. Compelling, awe-inspiring, easy to read. We've given so many copies away, I should buy this by the case. A really terrific book.
All Saints  Mar 25, 2008
Wonderful day by day reflection on the lives of prominate people and saints who have lived in our world.
Let The Buyer Understand . . .   May 14, 2007
. . . what this book is, and more importantly, what this book is not.

The book IS a collection of brief biographies of inspirational and prophetic persons throughout the ages, presented in a "saint of the day" format. (As another reviewer has pointed out, many of the persons presented are done so on their "official" feast day.)

The book is NOT an exclusive collection of Catholic (or Orthodox or Anglican) saints; nor is it limited even to Christians. The buyer needs to be aware of this fact prior to purchase, as this will undoubtedly turn off some potential readers -- and, most likely, pique the interest of others. If a buyer is looking for a "Lives of the Saints" in the strict, ecclesial sense of the word, this is not what you are looking for.

Some readers may also be put off by the rather obvious left-wing bias of the author evident both in some of the individuals chosen for mention -- and, frankly, in a certain amount of historical revisionism. (I read the entry for "Heloise" today, and as a professional historian, absolutely cringed.)

This is not to say, however, that the book is without value. Indeed, it is an eye-opening read, especially for those unfamiliar with some of the great spiritual and philosophical minds outside the realm of Christianity. There's a great deal of brilliance out there!

Just know what you're purchasing.
Wonderful compendium  Mar 8, 2007
I have taken to reading the life described for each day of the year as my inspiration morning reading. A wonderfully inclusive broadly based choice of prophets and witnesses for our time, not forgetting those formally canonized, who qualify as speaking to us now.
A wonderful daily resource for hope  Aug 2, 2006
This is one of our favorite books. We pray from it daily. It has been a wonderful resource. I was asked to give a morning retreat based on hope. I used this book as the basis for the prayer. Our hope resides in one another as we seek God in our daily lives. The saints,the prophets and witnesses in Ellsberg's book are living examples of this simple truth.
