friendly and inspiring

by Michael G on Mar 3, 2011

I love the way the author invites you to look at the saints as people you are getting to know and build a relationship with. People who you can turn to for help or inspiration. He looks at how his relationship with the saints has inspired him and helped him.

Holy Doesn't Mean Boring

by ALKA on Apr 18, 2008

In a very relaxed, straightforward and honest manner James Martin introduces the saints (canonized and not) who have influenced his life. Because each "life" in the book has its own chapter, it lends itself to picking and choosing until all of these extrordinary people appear as real people in the life of a real contemporary man. On any given day St. Ignatius of Loyola's life may feel like too heavy a topic for you. Pick someone else. You will get back to Ignatius and be glad you did. With a sense of humor he shows throughout the book, Martin introduces St. Jude as "The Saint of the Sock Drawer." Of St. Joan of Arc he says, "...Joan confuses me as much as she attracts me. She acts like a crazy young girl, hearing voices, leaving her family, going to war, and dying for an unseen person." And he lacks no sense of humor when recounting his own life. After all, the title of the book is "My Life..." If you are looking for a book to inspire, encourage, amuse and inform you, this is a good choice.
