In this sequel to Christ in the Psalms, popular pastor and scholar Patrick Henry Reardon once again applies his keen intellect to a topic he loves most dearly. Here he examines the lives of almost 150 saints and heroes from the Scriptures, everyone from Abigail to Zephaniah, Adam to St. John the Theologian. This well-researched work is a veritable cornucopia of Bible personalities: Old Testament saints, New Testament saints, "Repentant saints", "Zealous saints", "Saints under pressure" . . . they re all here, and their stories are both fascinating and uplifting. But  Christ in His Saints is far more than just a biblical "who s who." These men and women represent that ancient family into which, by baptism, all believers have been incorporated. Together they compose that great "cloud of witnesses" cheering us on and inspiring us through word and deed. Appropriate for Great Lent or any other time of the year.

About the Author Patrick Henry Reardon is pastor of All Saints' Orthodox Church in Chicago, Illinois, and a senior editor of Touchstone. He is the author of Christ in the Psalms, The Trial of Job, Creation and the Patriarchal Histories, as well as more than 500 articles, editorials, and reviews, published in Books and Culture, Touchstone, The Scottish Journal of Theology, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly, Pro Ecclesia, St. Vladimir's Theological Quarterly, and other journals on three continents.

Reviews "Christ in His Saints is an outstanding introduction to the personalities in the stories of the Scriptures, of both the Old and New Testaments. Fr Patrick brings many well known figures, as well as many who are otherwise obscure, into glorious clarity. Over 150 figures from the Scriptures are examined, their lives and actions rendered into a lively meditation on spiritual life, and the Orthodox vision of Christianity. These short vignettes reflect every aspect of human life, and make the Scriptures come alive, illumining our own lives and faith." --Divine Ascent Magazine "Fr. Patrick Reardon gives us desperately needed reflections on the saints in a style and substance fit for contemporary people." -- Fr. Thomas Hopko
