Saints Lives & Illuminations - Hardcover

Saints: Lives and Illuminations presents the stories of forty remarkable people -- martyrs, hermits, miracle workers, scholars, and evangelists -- who were the pioneers of the early Church and who, in the first millennium, spread the Christian faith to the rest of the world.

With brief biographical sketches and lush pencil and oil portraits, author and illustrator Ruth Sanderson stokes the flame of our centuries old and ongoing interest in the faith and lives of these spiritual examples -- saints who have forever changed the way we look at and live our lives in relationship to God.
