Overview

The two volumes of the Saints Alive! collection go beyond biography, bringing together the compelling stories of saints’ lives with teaching on Catholic beliefs. Sisters Marie Paul Curley and Mary Lea Hill of the Daughters of St. Paul—both experienced screenwriters—feature a diverse selection of saints in a format that is both exciting to read and conducive to reflection and study. The saints are presented as inspirational, yet practical models of the faith, highlighting the connection between Christian beliefs and how we live our lives. The biographies include facts—both general and lesser-known—on each saint, as well as prayers and quotes attributed to them.

Each volume also includes a reader’s guide with personal reflection and group discussion questions, directing readers to relevant parts of the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. This unique feature makes these volumes ideal for RCIA teachers and participants, adult faith formation groups, parish book clubs, and independent study.

With Logos Bible Software, these valuable volumes are enhanced by cutting-edge research tools. Scripture citations appear on mouseover in your preferred English translation. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Powerful topical searches help you find exactly what you’re looking for. Tablet and mobile apps let you take the discussion with you. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Praise for the Print Edition

I loved Saints Alive! A beautiful compendium of the amazing stories of the great heroes and heroines of our faith, combined with personal reflections and prayers (not to mention resources for group discussions and private meditation). It will serve a glorious introduction to those who have been raised to the ‘glories of the altar.’

James Martin, SJ, author My Life with the Saints

Take a trip around the world with Saints Alive! The Gospel Witnessed (and its companion, Saints Alive! The Faith Proclaimed). This book is not just a true representation of the universality of the Church, but also a practical guide to living the Gospel. I always tell kids that the saints are good role models, that they are ‘Gospel Artists,’ but often it’s not easy to see how their lives have to do with what’s in Scripture. These exciting stories of real people show that living the Gospel is possible and that we too can be saints who witness the Gospel through our day-to-day living.

—Deacon Pedro Guevara Mann, producer, Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation

Showing how real people lived the eight beatitudes and seven sacraments, this collection of stories features saints from different eras, continents, and walks of life.

Teachers and students of the faith, as well as individuals who are simply looking for captivating stories to read will find these stories educational and enjoyable.

For each saint included in the text, you can find their biographical portrait, along with a prayer, a fact box, notes, and a quote from their writings. A reader’s guide contains personal reflection and group discussion questions, and it directs you to relevant parts of the Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church—making itideal for RCIA teachers and participants, adult faith formation groups, parish book clubs, and independent study.

The saints show us that being a baptized Christian means living as a new creation, rejoicing in a life radically different from the status quo of the world. All the holy people, whose lives fill this book, show readers how to let the grace of God in the sacraments create their lives anew.

—Stephen J. Binz, author, Threshold Bible Study

Saints Alive! The Faith Proclaimed presents the lives of 31 holy people in an engaging format: the story. This elite group encompasses not only beloved familiar saints, but also recent ones and a few still on the way to canonization. For every beatitude and sacrament, two holy ones are offered as models. Each biography is followed by lists of interesting facts. A definite asset at the back of the book is ‘Reader's Guides,’ questions and resources for personal and group reflection. Reading this book is a pleasurable way to meet some of the people we hope to live with one day.
