Blessed Among Women: Women Saints, Prophets and Witnesses of Our Time
Robert Ellsberg, Crossroad, $39.95, hardcover, 316 pages
All Saints presents an account of an exemplar of Christian faith and virtue for each day of the year. After its publication, some readers expressed disappointment that only around a quarter of those profiled in the book were women. Although that figure does reflect the breakdown of official Catholic saints according to gender, Ellsberg took up the challenge and Blessed Among Women is the result.
