From his personal experience of them, Gerald O’Collins has created a set of lively portraits: four popes (from Pope (St) Paul VI to Pope Benedict XVI), four family members (including his parents and two of his siblings), and twelve others. The third group begins with Mother (St) Teresa of Calcutta, the publisher Geoffrey Chapman, the musical director Richard Divall, and ends with Peter Steele. Vivid anecdotes and insights abound. In their different ways, all the men and women celebrated in this book have much to teach about human living and Christian faith.
