DESCRIPTION
This handsome volume includes beautifully painted 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 Saint 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 Sanderson's book about saints who lived in the first millennium (Saints: Lives and Illuminations) or as a stand-alone volume, this book will instruct and inspire readers of all ages.
