Originally published: Grand Rapids, Mich.: Eerdmans books for Young Readers in two volumes: Saints (2001) and More saints (2007).


From well-known saints like Patrick and Francis of Assisi to such lesser-known figures as Saint Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino, this volume brings together for the first time all of the saint stories in Ruth Sanderson's two previous books, Saints and More Saints, now presented in combined picture book format.Each of the saints featured -- over 70 in all -- is presented through a beautiful detailed portrait page paired with a brief biographical sketch, which includes dates, feast days, and patronage.The book also features an introduction detailing the process of becoming a saint, a list of additional resources, and a glossary offering readers deeper insight into the historical and religious context of the saints' lives. Readers of all ages will be inspired and informed by the stories of these remarkable men and women who have provided spiritual examples to Christians from the very beginning of the church up to the present day.
