:From well-known saints like Patrick and Francis of Assisi to such lesser-known figures as Saint Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Bernardino, this volume brings together for the first time all of the saint stories in Ruth Sanderson's two previous books, Saints and More Saints, now presented in combined picture book format.
Each of the saints featured -- over 70 in all -- is presented through a beautiful detailed portrait page paired with a brief biographical sketch, which includes dates, feast days, and patronage.
The book also features an introduction detailing the process of becoming a saint, a list of additional resources, and a glossary offering readers deeper insight into the historical and religious context of the saints' lives.
Readers of all ages will be inspired and informed by the stories of these remarkable men and women who have provided spiritual examples to Christians from the very beginning of the church up to the present day.
Ruth Sanderson brings to this familiar story her experience as the illustrator of over sixty books for children, including Saints: Lives and Illuminations (Eerdmans), Cinderella, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and Tapestries: Stories of Women in the Bible (all Little, Brown and Company). A graduate of the Paier College of Art in New Haven, Connecticut, Ruth finds inspiration for her art in icons, Renaissance paintings, illuminated manuscripts, old engravings, and woodcuts. Ruth lives in Massachusetts, and her website can be found at www.ruthsanderson.com.
