Synopsis

In Sharing God's Good Company David Matzko McCarthy explores the role and significance of the saints in Christians' lives today. While examining the lives of specific saints like Martin de Porres, Th�r�se de Lisieux, and Mother Teresa, McCarthy especially focuses on such topics as the veneration of martyrs, realism and hagiography, science and miracles, images and pilgrimage, and why the saints continue to captivate Christians and inspire devotion.

Although books about saints abound, Sharing God's Good Company takes a uniquely philosophical and theological approach to the topic. Interested general readers and Catholic scholars alike will find McCarthy's book refreshing and informative.
