My daughter Rosemary (a bookish eleven-year-old) recommends a new title from Sophia Institute Press, The Book of Saints and Heroes, by Andrew and Lenora Lang. (I can’t find it on Amazon yet, but it’s available from the publisher.) I haven’t read the book, but I trust Rosemary’s judgment. I note that about a third of the volume is given to figures of the patristic era: St. Anthony of Egypt, St. Dorothea, St. Jerome, Synesius of Cyrene, St. Augustine, St. Germanus, St. Simeon Stylites, and many others. It’s a sturdy and attractive hardcover book, which I must now hand back to its rightful owner.
