There are so many wonderful saints who go unnoticed and very little known about them, we seem to acknowledge and venerate the more well known, this book by Alban Butler brings in other's to whet your appetite for further reading.

Some saints are well known like Sy Francis of Assisi. Many more are distant echoes lost in a bygone age. Reading their stories is often heartbreaking when you see how they suffered for their faith. Also some are simple and inspirational. In their historical context they convey a whiff of past times when the Church was much more to everyone for good and for ill.

I wanted this as a basic day by day calendar of main feast days and as such it serves my purose well. but this e-book edition of the classic guide to hagiography, as it has come to be known over the past 75 years, is not for the theologian seeking in depth accounts of every person who has been canonised by the Catholic church.For this comlete and magnificent directory you have to fork out avery large sum indeed and definitely in a better format than an e-book.

I was looking for a cost effective kindle book that gives me the basics of the lives of the saints and this publication fits the bill quite well. I have only skimmed it so far but it appears to be well written.

An old book like this neednt be difficult to read, I urge anyone thinking about it to go ahead as this book is charmingly written and really encourages a good heart and a Catholic lifestyle.

I like the book but was hoping it would have been more of a short biography on each saint to be more interesting and knowledgable to read.
