"The saints are inexhaustibly varied, each of them expressing the gifts of the Holy Spirit in his or her unique and unrepeatable way. Christopher Moorey has presented us with an admirable selection of examples from the 'great cloud of witnesses' by whom we are surrounded. He writes in a vivid and lively style: I am convinced that his book will help many rediscover the saints and to choose among them some whom in a distinctive way they will make their personal friends." -Metropolitan Kallistos Ware, describing the original Greek edition of Traveling Companions
