This elegantly illustrated hardback collects together the stories of the men and women who gave Jesus' message to the world and led inspirational lives in the Christian faith. Margaret McAllister tells the stories in her own inimitable lively, touching, and vivid style. Some stories are told in the first person, others as if by onlookers, giving variety to the tales. Alida Massari's illustration style, inspired by ancient art and architecture and full of grace and sophistication, is perfectly suited to the book. A beautiful and informative title.

Margaret McAllister is the author of over forty books for children, from funny things for under fives to teen fiction and everything in between – animals, history, funny, scary. For Lion she has written vivid re-tellings of Bible stories and tales of the saints, and her newest book, The Good Thing About Bad Days is to help young readers through the tough times that jump out and bite us.

Margaret lives in beautiful Northumberland with her husband, a retired Methodist minister. They have lived in five different places in the North-East and Yorkshire while bringing up three children who have turned out surprisingly well. She loves books, theatre, animals, walks in the countryside, welcoming visitors to Hexham Abbey and meeting up with friends. Margaret is a collector of grandchildren (including a grandspaniel.) Her long ago spaniel, Daniel, will welcome you to her website http://www.margaretmcallister.co.uk/
