Reviews

"A valuable reference book which ought to find a place in every Catholic publication office."--Catholic Journalist
"A masterful compendium which proves that it is possible to be both scholarly and popular."--U.S. Catholic
"It is remarkable how the most significant facts are recorded here, even those of a legendary character. This makes the volume ideal for ready reference."--National Catholic Register
"Dictionary of Saints has used all the latest critical investigations into the lives of the saints....We have here a fascinating company of men and women who devoted their lives to Christ in widely varied ways...not only a careful and thoughtful presentation of all the saints you would want to know about, but it is delightful reading to dip into."--America
"The author is careful to separate legend from history, but includes as legend most of the popular stories about the saints....A "dictionary of saints" is a sine qua non of a church library's reference collection. This one suits the purpose admirably [and] is heartily recommended to the pious amateur."--Church & Synagogue Libraries
"Comprehensive...abounds with interesting tidbits."--Christianity Today
"This readable, up-to-date one-volume compendium...gives more about the saints than similar dictionaries."--Library Journal
"As a reference and resource book this volume contains all the saints the ordinary person will ever seek information about...no matter where you start reading in it, it is interesting and hard to put down. That's a compliment to both the saints and the author of the book."--Spiritual Book News
