Alban Butler was a Catholic priest in the 18th century who's still remembered today for his biographies of the Catholic Church's greatest figures. Decades of work went into his seminal work, The Lives of the Saints, commonly referred to as "Butler's Lives." Hundreds of years later, it is still the most comprehensive collection of biographies of saints, and it is a must read for anyone interested in Christianity and the religion's history.

This book actually DOES have pictures. The sample omits them, but the actual book has them. But even without the pictures, the book would be worth every penny. Alban Butler is a good author with a lot of knowledge about the saints; he is what makes this book the best saint book of all time.

The book gives a thumbnail sketch of the lives of many of the old-time saints. I read about a few each night for devotional purposes.

But don't buy it for the pictures like the other person said, because there are none aside from the cover. The dates are not quite the same as on my traditional calendars, which might be because of leap year or might be because of the new order. But I bought this version because the first review said lots of pictures and I wish I had known the truth before I paid.
