Inhaltsangabe: In the last decade or so books about the saints have risen to the top of bestseller lists nationwide. Today's seekers, looking for meaning and balance in their lives, are trying to glean wisdom from those who have walked the spiritual path before them. Reading centuries-old words written for a different age, however, can prove difficult and frustrating. For these seekers, and for those who desire devotional texts in general, Celebrating the Saints offers the best of Christian spiritual readings.
Using the saint's day calendars of the Church of England and the Episcopal Church in America, Robert Atwell and Christopher Webber provide readings from hymns, sermons, treatises, letters, journals, prayers and poems written by the saint, or writing about that individual. Christian men and women from the last two millennia are included--from Clement of Alexandria and Hippolytus of Rome to Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Evelyn Underhill. Brief biographies and an index to the themes covered in the book make this a useful reference tool, as well as a wonderful devotional book.
A beautifully crafted book, with fine hardcover binding and ribbon marker, Celebrating the Saints is an excellent gift for any season or occasion. A perfect companion to anyone observing the Episcopal Lesser Feasts and Fasts.
Über den Autor: Robert Atwell is Vicar of Primrose Hill, London, where he resides. He is also the compiler of Celebrating the Seasons (2000).
Christopher L. Webber is an Episcopal priest who has served inner city, suburban, and overseas parishes. He is the author of many books including Welcome to the Episcopal Church: An Introduction to Its History, Faith, and Worship (1999), and The Vestry Handbook, Revised Edition (1999).
