    "Field Guide to the Saints" What a gem of a book! If you've ever stood in front of a painting, puzzling over the depiction of a mysterious individual with a halo, this book is for you. You'll learn how to discern a saint's identity from various objects that are typically pictured with each saint. After reading this book, I pulled out my coffee table art books, searching for saints to identify. The index in this book makes it easy--absorbing and educational for adults, and a fun way to help children understand art. Along with the original artwork accompanying each saint's description, it would have been great to include an historical painting to illustrate the use of "saintly" objects throughout history. Highly recommended.

    "Field Guide to the Saints - Highly recommended" I was delighted to find the book easy to understand and a fun read. I was always intimidated by my lack of knowlege about the paintings I would see in museums and churches on my travels, but my first visit to a rather famous church - armed with the book - provided much entertainment for the group I was with as we started to "see" the attributes in the paintings then finding them in the "Object Clue List." (a very clever key to identifying the saints) After that it was easy to find and read all about the saints and compare the attributes in the beautiful pictures. The book was the hit of the afternoon and everyone agreed they had never spent such an intimate and enjoyable time on a church tour before.
