","text":"I love books like this one. I love reading about saints and am currently reading books from 4 different series about saints. But what a book like this does is introduce me to a few new saints, it gives me some more information and examples from saints that I am more familiar with. This was an EPIC READ that I could hardly put down. It is mostly eBook about specific saints and But there is also a lot of great information about the process of saint making, and the canon and calendar of saints. But the volume is not just the work of Shaun McAfee there are several contributors. Those contributors are:\r\n\r\nAlex R. Hey\r\nSarah Spittler\r\nJessica Mcafee\r\nTheresa Zoe Williams\r\nBrooke Gregory\r\nDeacon Marty Mcindoe\r\nShaun Mcafee\r\nLaura Hensley\r\nMike Panlilio\r\nMaggie Van Sciver\r\n\r\nThe essays interspersed through the biographies are:\r\n\r\nHave Saints Always Been Canonized The Same Way?\r\nWhat Is The General Roman Calendar?\r\nCan These Stories Be Allegorical?\r\nAre We Really Expected To Believe These Stories?\r\nWhy Are Some Saints Not On The Calendar?\r\nWhat Is The Process For Canonization?\r\nWhat Should We Do With Saint Narratives That Contain Errors Or Inconsistencies?\r\nWhy Are Some Canonized Quickly While Others Have Been In The Process For Centuries?\r\nCan I Become A Saint?\r\n\r\nAnd on top of that are profiles of 74 saints. Shaun and the other contributors do an amazing job or highlighting so many saints in such a short space. There are almost a dozen saints I need to go find further readings on. And my son is already looking forward to my rereading this book with him. \r\n\r\nIn this volume there are a few tales about dragons. Saints pulling practical jokes and pranks. A bilocating death and many, many more. Stories of saints, of Martyrs and holy men and women. \r\n\r\nThough I will be honest with you, the pieces in this volume are so well written you might have a hard time picking a favorite. And you will definitely want to read more on at least some of the saints. An excellent read, that I highly recommend.

Discover the Epic Humanity of the Saints

The saints are not myths or legends, they were people just like us who lived lives of ­epic virtue.
 
If the saints have never made you laugh or drop your jaw, they will in this book. Bestselling author Shaun McAfee (Reform Yourself!, Filling Our Father’s House) and guest writers illustrate how the saints were not just stone-faced old men. Some of them had quirky habits, outrageous personalities, and did breathtaking deeds...but they all had epic faith.
 
Their lives were filled with events that push our understanding of charity with intrepid virtue, but at certain points, they lacked common sense and were uproariously funny, too.
 
Discover the time:
 
·      A young man known for his spiritual perfection almost blew himself to bits with a cannon.
·      The saint of the Cristero War became a master of disguises to save Christians and hilariously taunt his persecutors.
·      Twin saints conjured dragons and tempests just to preserve vocations of novices.
·      The founder of the Oratorians joked about his own death, just moments before he died.
·      A famous cardinal rejected guaranteed conclave votes to make him pope.
·      A magnificent preacher was— understandably—accused of being insane.
 
You’ll be filled with faith and laughter as you discover that God truly sends the lowly to do his will on earth, but that over time and with God’s graces, the lowly are lifted the highest—even if they are a little wild, weird, and epically wonderful.
