Good for playing "Spot the Saint" March 29 2010
By TNH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A very good reference book if you're unfamiliar with the standard representations of saints and want to know who's the guy with the gridiron (St. Lawrence) or the woman with the dragon on a leash (St. Margaret of Antioch). On the other hand, one hundred saints is a limited selection. It's like a pool with no deep end: you'll never find yourself unable to cope with the subject, but if you want to dive in wholeheartedly, you'll have to look elsewhere.

Easter reading May 17 2007
By Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Enjoyed this book so much as the passenger on a ride to Cape Cod on Good Friday that I ordered 3 more copies for my children. Each saint has about a one page writeup with an accompanying illustration generally by some famous painter.

Inspiration by example Jan. 9 2007
By Mary Bellis Williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A nice little volume of many of the most influential saints and why they are important to us as examples for our lives. I'd like the volume to be a little bigger and have a different binding that allows it to open fully more easily so it's easier to see text and paintings that illustrate each saint.
Saints: Real and Mythical Jan. 7 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This beautiful little book took these Canadian authors on an international journey, photographing artistic works depicting dozens of saints. A short bio accompanies each saint, including those with doubtful, or downright "make believe" origin.
