My Life with the Saints
by James Martin and John L. Allen




Overview -
One of Publishers Weekly's Best Books of the Year Winner of the Christopher Award Winner of the Catholic Press Association Book Award WITTY, WRYLY HONEST, AND ALWAYS ORIGINAL, My Life with the Saints is James Martin's story of how his life has been shaped by some surprising friends--the saints of the Catholic Church. In his modern classic memoir, Martin introduces us to saints throughout history--from St. Peter to Dorothy Day, St. Francis of Assisi to Mother Teresa--and chronicles his lifelong friendships with them. Filled with fascinating tales, Martin's funny, vibrant, and stirring book invites readers to discover how saints guide us throughout our earthly journeys and how they help each of us find holiness in our own lives.
Featuring a new chapter from Martin, this tenth-anniversary edition of the best-selling memoir updates readers about his life over the past ten years. In that time, he has been a New York Times best-selling author, official chaplain of The Colbert Report, and a welcome presence in the media whenever there's a breaking Catholic news story. But he has always remained recognizably himself. John L. Allen, Jr., the acclaimed Catholic journalist, contributes a foreword that shows how Martin has become one of the wisest and most insightful voices of this era.
"An outstanding and often hilarious memoir." --Publishers Weekly"One of the best spiritual memoirs in years." --Robert Ellsberg"Remarkably engaging." --U.S. Catholic"Martin's final word is as Jungian as it is Catholic: God does not want us to be Mother Teresa or Dorothy Day. God wants us to be most fully ourselves." --The Washington Post Book World
