This is a fascinating collection of short biographies of the greatest spiritual stars of the last thousand years, ranging from St Anselm to Martin Luther King. Some of the greatest living scholars have contributed to this series: Eamon Duffy on Dante; Rowan Williams on St John of the Cross; Owen Chadwick on Newman and David McLellan on Simone Weil. The book includes many charming surprises, such as Johann Sebastian Bach, Fra Angelico and Blaise Pascal. Through these pages, we can glimpse a new vision of sanctity and holiness, burningly relevant to the needs and preoccupations of modern times.
