Perfect Pairing 6: Getting To Know The Saints
Two Great Books - One Low Price!
We struggle with sin, we become distracted in prayer, we find it hard to be loving and easy to be selfish. In Reform Yourself!, Shaun McAfee shows you how the magnificent saints of the Counter-Reformation can be guides in your own personal transformation.
Drawing upon the saints’ writings, works, and life events, Reform Yourself! reveals in each of them a model of a particular virtue or grace that we all need—along with practical tips for imitating them in our own lives.
Many quotes from the Saints are such a part of modern pious tradition that we assume they come from the Bible, the mouths of saints, or the pens of famous Christian writers. Even though nobody can seem to place their exact origin, by sheer repetition—in books, in homilies, and of course on the internet—they have acquired a halo of truth.
In What the Saints Never Said, apologist Trent Horn takes over forty of these well-known but dubious sayings and attempts to track them to their true source. In so doing he finds some that are close to what was really said, many that were misattributed or twisted beyond their original meaning, and more than a few that were just plain made up!
