In this quick reference book on some of the saints of the Bible, mainly from the New Testament, Theresa Doyle-Nelson devotes between a page and a half to two pages on each of her subjects. The general reader will enjoy this book, and others can use it as an introduction into the study of the saints of the Bible.

Arranged in order of their feast days are the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God (January 1); the Twelve Apostles; St. Paul; St. Stephen; St. Barnabas; St. Mary Magdalene; St. Lazarus and his sister, St. Martha; St. Philemon; and several others, finishing with the Holy Innocents (December 28). Doyle-Nelsonís two-page bibliography includes books and Internet sites, and she provides not only the current date of the feast of the saint; if the feast day has been moved, she also shows the old date.

She designates what each saint is patron of and begins the individual mini-biographies with short quotes from Scripture on the particular saint. The end of the biography provides some citations as to where to find more Scriptural quotes on the saint. A chart before the bibliography lists the saintís name, what the name means, date of feast, patronage of, and Scripture reference. This book is highly recommended as an introduction to saints of the Bible.
