Most church traditions recognise the special Christian witness of individual men and women
over the ages. Whether formally termed ‘saints’ or celebrated as pioneers and ‘game-changers’, many of whom were put to death for their faith, their lives are often astonishing and frequently inspiring.
Rupert Bristow has put together the stories of these people, more than 670 in all, ranging from household names to almost forgotten figures, for every day of the year and has written an accompanying prayer for each one. Faithful to the dates these saints are commemorated, Prayers for Saints is an invaluable resource for church and home, study and worship – or as a start to further exploration of the impact made by these extraordinary people.
The accompanying CD-Rom makes it easy to integrate the text into prayers, sermons and study material.
