An Eighth Day View:
The saints have said wonderful things about every aspect of the Christian life, but much of their writing is inaccessible. To meet this need, Charis Books presents an exciting new series of Saints' Guides. In these books, readers will find helpful and inspiring teaching taken directly from the saints' own works. Compiled by experienced writers and editors, each book presents the wisdom of a wide variety of saints on such topics as prayer, suffering, and forgiveness. For people who want to hear from the saints, the Saints' Guides are the ideal place to start. Popularly written, beautifully designed, short, and priced at $9.99, they make ideal gifts for all occasions.
Even if we tend to value the heart over the head, what we think about Jesus really matters. Many early Christians, our teachers in the faith, died as martyrs because they insisted on holding to certain orthodox teachings about who Jesus was. This saints' guide assembles practical examples and extensive quotes from the Fathers of the Church to show that our devotional life needs the clarifying support of doctrine and that right doctrine leads to deeper, fuller and more satisfying devotion.
