In this long-awaited sequel to Christ in the Psalms, popular pastor and scholar, Patrick Henry Reardon, once again applies his keen intellect to a topic he loves most dearly. Here he examines the lives of almost one hundred and fifty saints and heroes from the Scriptures, everyone from Abigail to Zephaniah, Adam to St. John the Theologian. This well-researched work is a veritable cornucopia of Bible personalities: Old Testament Saints, New Testament Saints, "Repentant Saints", "Zealous saints", "Saints under pressure" . . . they're all here, and their stories are both fascinating and uplifting.But Christ in His Saints is far more than just a biblical "who's who". These men and women represent that ancient family into which, by baptism, all believers have been incorporated. Together they compose that great "cloud of witnesses" cheering us on and inspiring us through word and deed.
"Fr. Patrick Reardon gives us desperately needed reflections on the saints in a style and substance fit for contemporary people." -- Fr. Thomas Hopko
