This handsome volume includes beautiful, detailed portraits and biographical sketches of thirty-six remarkable men and women of the second millennium. In addition to well-known saints like Francis of Assisi and Anthony of Padua, "More Saints" also explores the lives of lesser-known people, such as Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino.

An introduction detailing the process of becoming a saint, a listing of additional resources, and a glossary offer readers deeper insight into the historical and religious context of the saints' lives.

As a sequel to her first book about saints who lived in the first millennium ("Saints: Lives and Illuminations," Eerdmans 2003), or as a stand-alone volume, this book will instruct and inspire readers of all ages.

Because much of what we know today about saints is culled from legend, and the process of canonization remains a bit mysterious, these holy figures intrigue as much as they inspire.
