In this sequel to David Brown's book Signs of Grace (Continuum 1995), the author turns his attention to the saints and images of sanctity, as portrayed in art. Based on a series of highly acclaimed sermons given in Durham Cathedral, David Brown examines the artist's view of sanctity and how this enlarges our own view of the humanity and holiness of those called to be saints throughout the ages. As a result of this, the reader is led to a new understanding of the veneration of the saints and the possibilities of the call to holiness in the turbulent and secular modern world.
-Publisher

David Brown is Van Mildert Professor of Divinity at the University of Durham and a Canon of Durham Cathedral, as well as a Fellow of the British Academy.
-Publisher

David Brown engages the question of the role of saints in modern life head on: are they an irrelevance? Brown tells the story of the Church across the centuries through some thirty examples of saints, Protestant no less than Catholic. Because many of them faced dilemmas much more like our own than those of Jesus, their very human wrestlings can continue to help us in our own spiritual pilgrimage. Three more general chapters explain how giving them a special place, far from diminishing Christ, actually secures and enhances his meaning.
