Offering an inspiring mix of history and biography, Saints on Earth tells the stories of the diverse people commemorated in the Common Worship calendar of Holy Days, with over 250 saints' days, festivals and commemorations that greatly enrich the Christian year.
This wide-ranging selection of spiritually significant men and women features Celtic and Catholic saints, Reformers, Tractarians, bishops and missionaries together with poets, writers, martyrs, social reformers, kings and queens. Recent heroes and heroines of faith, both Anglican and from other Christian traditions, are celebrated alongside those who inspired the Early Church.
This versatile companion is a rich source of inspiration for preaching and leading prayers and worship throughout the year. It is now updated to include figures added to the Common Worship calendar in recent years.
