Beautiful, stunning, moving, and convicting. This is a wonderful collection of the deeds of the Saints in the words of their contemporaries, often times Saints as well. Very helpful, also, in explaining why these Christians were revered and why should revere( that is, not necessarily imitate ) them today.
