Saints on Earth: A Biographical Companion to Common Worship
Combining a stimulating mix of history and biography, Saints on Earth gives detailed information about the people commemorated in the Common Worship calendar of Holy Days - a calendar greatly expanded from those contained in the Book of Common Prayer and the Alternative Service Book. This wide-ranging selection of spiritually significant men and women features Celtic and Catholic saints, Reformers, Tractarians, bishops and missionaries together with poets, writers, martyrs, social reformers, kings and queens. Recent heroes and heroines of faith, both Anglican and from other Christian traditions, are celebrated alongside those who inspired the Early Church. The accompanying free CD-ROM includes a module compatible with Visual Liturgy 4.0; this links each biography electronically to its allocated Holy Day, allowing users to access that day's information at the click of a button. The CD-ROM also contains searchable PDF files of the Saints on Earth material. This versatile companion is a rich source of inspiration for preaching and leading prayers and worship throughout the year. It is also a valuable resource for teachers in Church schools.
