Amazing Grace for Survivors
Patti Armstrong lives in North Dakota. She and her husband Mark are the parents of ten children--eight boys and two girls, including two adopted AIDS orphans from Kenya. Patti worked in the field of social work and public administration before staying full-time to raise her children. As a freelance writer, Patti has published more than 400 articles for both secular and religious publications. She has authored the book Catholic Truths for Our Children from Scepter Publishers as a guide to help parents pass on their Catholic faith, and serves as the managing editor and co-author of the Catholic best-selling Amazing Grace book series. Patti has been a guest on EWTN Television's Live program with Father Mitch Pacwa and Doug Keck's Bookmark program and other Catholic Radio programs around the country.
There is no greater authority on the saints than Alban Butler, and his enormous research has been the standard reference on the subject for the last two and a half centuries. This new adaptation of Butler's multi-volume Lives of the Saints presents a modernized text for today's reader and provides an illuminating guide to these historic, symbolic, and foundational Christian men and women.
