"What most of us want to know is how can we live an authentic and sustainable spiritual life in our post-secular context? In Ordinary Saints, Stuart offers a creative re-formulation of the ancient vocation of sainthood, which for the Christian faith has long been a classic role and way of being. Drawing on biblical teaching, the mystical tradition, and a deep spiritual awareness, the book invites its readers to live their lives adventurously as saints. Stuart has made sainthood a viable vocation for us twenty-first-century people."

"Here is a book that speaks to the present situation. Christianity has been bumped from the center to the margins of society largely because of its ill-disciplined legalism and infighting. Jesus called us to something far more compelling. In Ordinary Saints, Devenish calls us to become the energized disciples Jesus called us to be. The opening parable of the book diagnoses our present situation, and is alone worth the price of the book. The remainder of the book presents a simple solution: act like Jesus and the message will be more readily 'heard' by our contemporary audience. The author is calling for a new age of saints, whose lives are transparent, humble, peaceful, joyous, and surprisingly overflowing with love. If that happens, Christianity will once again become an irresistible force."
