  1. Pete Pete says:

    Chris Armstrong's words are strung together to form absolutely compelling and engaging accounts across each of the 'patron saints' Carefully and yet excitedly we are presented each story within an immediacy that is contextually relevant to today's post modern times Really I don't believe this book is diminished in any way should we even frame the times in which we now live as being post post modern A truly commendable book; Chris goes beyond stepping into the shoes of and somehow almost embodying his chosen subjects to offer edification and encouragement to the reader well certainly for myself Both compelling and strengthening

    The author highlights ten lesser known Christians from history who today's Christian can look to for inspiration Their lives date from the third century until the 20th century Their backgrounds vocations and times They each had an impact upon Christian history I enjoyed this book because I like reading how God works in the lives of ordinary people to make an impact for Him

    This is a good read for information on several religious figures of lesser reknown Armstrong is direct balanced and provides a sound summary of each persons' accomplishments positions strengths foibles and successes as well as pointing out why they were influential His piece on Margery Kempe was sharp to the point and easy to read

    35 I enjoyed reading these ten biographies but recognize such a book is not for everyone Two commentsuestions 1 Could there have been balance between male and female here; there are three women and 7 men 2 I was thinking postmodern would mean recent historical figures and the book started with Antony of Egypt and ended with Dorothy L Sayers who died in 1957
