Who were the saints and what is it about them that causes people all over the world to remember them? What were their stories, motivations, passions--and shortcomings? This informative, delightful, inspiring book reveals the truth behind the misconceptions and the mystique in a survey of saints throughout the history of the Church. The stories included here emphasize that, although the saints were often flawed and quirky individuals, what made them saintly above all else was their dedication to faith. They had a "passionate, extraordinary, pull-out-all-the-stops devotion," writes award-winning Catholic author Mitch Finley, and a desire for truth that is not unlike our own.
"[The Seeker's Guide to Saints] is a book that Christians of all denominations can not only enjoy reading but can profit from spiritually."
--Fr. Joseph F. Girzone, author of The Joshua Series
"There is nothing so helpful to a seeker as the companionship of fellow seekers. That is what Mitch Finley provides in this helpful and informative guide to the saints."
--Robert Ellsberg, author of All Saints: Daily Reflections on Saints, Prophets, and Witnesses for Our Time
"Highly recommended for those who find the subject of saints intriguing or puzzling."
--Marlene Halpin, OP, educator and author of 189 Ways to Contact God and The Ball of Red String
