With one saint for each day of the year, this volume is a selection from the 2,500 entries in the new full edition of Butler's work. It gives a simple factual presentation of their lives, showing how they worked for the good of their fellow men and women. Towering figures (Anselm, Augustine, George) contrast with the more obscure (Blaise, Thorlac, Wulsin), but all illustrate the words of Alban Butler himself: in saints' lives 'we see the most perfect maxims of the gospel reduced to practice'.
