Summary

Summary

For the first time, the biographies more than 70 of the holiest men of modern times have been gathered in one unique collection. Saintly Men of Modern Times presents the stories of men who lived their faith even when it meant giving up everything else. From horse trader to prime minister, these are men from every walk of life, every occupation, every age, every state of life. The one thing they have in common is that they all found holiness where they lived, worked, and sometimes died for their Faith. Their stories of bravery and holiness in the face of oppressive governments, difficult families, addictions, handicaps, and illness inspire every one, but especially men who are looking for role models of contemporary sanctity.
