Description

This elegantly illustrated picture hardback collects together the stories of men and women, leading remarkable and inspirational lives in the Christian faith. Margaret McAllister tells the stories in her own inimitable style - lively, touching and vivid. Some stories are told in the first person, others as if by onlookers, giving variety to the tales, and each concludes with extra information about the life of the saint. Alida's illustration style, which is inspired by ancient art and architecture, is perfectly suited to the book, full of grace and sophistication. A beautiful and informative book. The stories are: Peter, Paul, Perpetua and Felicity, Patrick, Cyril and Methodius, Francis and Clare, Martin de Porres, Teresa of Avila, Ignatius of Loyola, Bernadette of Lourdes, Padre Pio: Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, Josephine Bakhitashow more
