In these essays the saints appear as paradoxes: like T.S. Eliot's St. Thomas Becket, they have felt "a tremor of bliss," but they must fight all-too-mortal battles with despair, social indifference, and hardness of heart.

Few stories are as cherished -and as contested- as the lives of the saints: the joyful St. Francis of Assisi, the steadfast St. Joseph, the ascetic and visionary St. Catherine of Siena. In this unique volume, seventeen distinguished writers explore the deep and varying responses the saints inspire in us today.
