Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0895554402, Paperback)

Here are 33 chapters about the greatest minds and greatest Saints the Catholic Church has ever produced. Written in a down-to-earth style, The 33 Doctors of the Church is a book that will be loved and appreciated by everyone. This monumental study could easily become 33 small books. But here it is in one compelling volume!

This book was undertaken by the author, a Franciscan Priest, when St. Lawrence of Brindisi (c. 1559-1619), a Franciscan, was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1961. Each story is completely different and shows every Doctor as the great individual and teacher that he or she was.

Filled with charming anecdotes and wonderful, memorable stories, the book also describes and gives selections from the major writings of all the Doctors and frames their lives in the times during which they lived, thus giving a wonderful panorama of Church history in the process.

No one will be disappointed in this book, for many of these lives are so profoundly interesting that they are alone worth the price of the book. From St. Athanasius (297-373) to St. Therese The Little Flower (1873-1897), The 33 Doctors of the Church will edify and inspire everyone who reads it.
