Near the heart of the world's great religions stand saints -- transcendently holy men and women whose "otherness" serves as an example of God's grace to ordinary believers everywhere. As miracle workers, healers, and teachers, saints are the most tangible manifestation of God's loving power. They are deeply mysterious as well, for they are both wholly human and have privileged contact with the divine. SAINTS: THE CHOSEN FEW gathers together the stories of these holy individuals, from all faiths and from around the world: Islam's mystical Sufis; the saints of Christianity, who range from the mystically powerful to the practically helpful; the humble, holy beggars of India; the humanitarian bodhisattvas of Buddhism; the scholars, righteous men, and Hasidim of Judaism. Along with all these spiritual guides are included two living saints, the Dalai Lama and the Hindu avatar, Sathya Sai Baba. And for those intrigued by the power of the saints, there is a guide to specific saints and the miracles they will perform for the faithful. Lavishly illustrated, here is a glorious, multicultural tribute to the God-filled men and women who keep the flame of faith alive among us. Like the saints themselves, SAINTS: THE CHOSEN FEW reminds us that life is wider, deeper, and more mysterious than it often appears in the light of our small, everyday struggles.
