Adrienne von Speyr offered a most unique perspective of the lives and hearts of some of the saints of the Catholic Church. A doctor, a convert to Catholicism, a mystic and author, she wrote more than sixty books on spirituality and theology.
The Book of All Saints is the result of her collaboration with Father Hans Urs von Balthasar, her spiritual director and confessor. Adrienne, through her unique chrism was able to put herself in the place of various individuals to see and describe their prayer. Afterwards, while in a state of prayer, she would dictate what she saw to Father von Balthasar. This book is a collection of those insights. Read about Saint John the Apostle, Saint Augustine, Saint Thomas Aquinas and many others, some of whom were not saints in the strictest sense of the word, but struggled to succeed in obedience to God. With one page devoted to each saint, over 400 personalities comprise this excellent collection.
