New. This work, sequel to Christ in the Psalms, is the beautiful exposition of nearly 150 saints from both the Old and New Testaments. As a speaker, pastor and author, Fr. Patrick Henry Reardon's reflections are always timely and insightful, so of course there is more here than mere factual accounts of the lives of our holy ancestors in Christ. Reardon's narrative is weighted with doctrine, history and theology revealed through each saint's Christian journey. One essay, ''the conversion of St. Paul, '' begins as a meditation of Jesus washing the disciples' feet, showing that (as with all of us) Christ chooses how and when He will bring us to repentance. Jesus Himself selects the time, the place and the vessels of His revelation. Christ in His Saints helps us see the continuity of Scripture as a history of God's unrelenting love for very normal people and encourages us to seek this same love. Fr. Reardon shows us ''Clever Saints and Wise, ' ''Questers and Questioners, '' ''Repentant Saints'' and even, ''Saints in Need of Improvement. '' Seen through the simplicity and imagination of Reardon's writing, our lives and the lives of these very human heroes don't seem at all disconnected. 314 pp.
