For more than two centuries, Butler's Lives of the Saints has been hailed as the authority on Christian sainthood. The latest edition of this spiritual classic, edited by Michael Walsh, draws on the rich resources of earlier versions while incorporating the latest scholarship.
Echoing the charm and style of the eighteenth-century edition, Walsh's volume has been edited to make the fascinating and inspiring lives of the saints easily accessible to readers today. This edition features saints from many nations and backgrounds and includes new articles on recently canonized saints. The index offers the list of saints from the complete edition, and includes all new canonizations and new dates, making it the most up-to-date listing of saints available. Butler's Lives of the Saints remains a remarkable reference source and a valuable aid to devotion.
Michael Walsh is the author of The Triumph of the Meek and editor of Butler's Lives of the Patron Saints.
"Growth and faith can be helped by stories and legends of the saints. . . . The lives of good men and women can be, and often are, an inspiration to us. Happily, their memory is recorded in one of the classic works of Christian sainthood, Butler's Lives of the Saints." -Basil Hume, Archbishop of WestminsterBinding Type:
