“In every age one encounters a cloud of witnesses whose lives articulate its deepest longings. This penetrating analysis—marked by spiritual, historical, and cultural insight—introduces the vibrant personalities who so clearly understood the larger implications hidden beneath the surface in the era of the European Reformations.”
– Don J. Briel, Bl. John Henry Newman Chair, University of Mary
“These stunning portraits of ten very great saints show the beauty of God’s grace shining through the lives of his closest friends. The path marked out by the True Reformers of the sixteenth century is the path we still need to walk in the twenty?first: the steep and narrow path of holiness.”
– Christopher O. Blum, Ph.D., Academic Dean and Professor of History and Philosophy, Augustine Institute
“To read these accounts is a kind of retreat. It provides an opportunity to reflect on our love of God, our prayer life, and the mission God has given each of us in light of our spiritual teachers.”
– Jonathan J. Reyes, Executive Director, of the Departement of Justice, Peace, and Human Development of the USCCB
