Miracles of the Saints: True Stories of Lives Touched by the Supernatural

Bert Ghezzi, Author Zondervan Publishing Company $13.99 (0p) ISBN 978-0-310-20700-9
Ghezzi, v-p and editorial director for Servant Publications, embraces the saints with a\ sense of joie de vivre and humor. Reading this book is like hearing Ghezzi talk fondly of old, dear friends, as his commentary on each saint's life is affectionate and personal. The book is divided into five sections: ""Love,"" ""Mystics and Miracles,"" ""Conversion,"" ""To Awaken Us, and ""Those That Changed the Course of HIstory."" While most of the saints--e.g.,St. Francis of Assisi, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Joan of Arc and St. Patrick--are well known, there are a few here--e.g., Solanus Casey and St. John Bosco--who are more obscure. This is a fun and lighthearted book that will be enjoyed by almost anyone. Illustrations not seen by PW. (Oct.)
