    Be inspired by saints like never before in My Life with the Saints by James Martin, SJ. This best-selling memoir of spiritual self-discovery is an homage to the saints who have accompanied Fr. Martin throughout his life. From a lukewarm childhood Catholicism, to the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to the Jesuits, to a media career in Manhattan, Martin has relied on the saints to intervene in and guide his life.

    Would you listen to My Life With the Saints again? Why?

    Yes, I would definitely listen to this book again. There are so many little gems about the saints and their lives and examples of how you can use their experiences to help you in your own life. It was so jammed packed I want to listen to it over and over again and take notes. I loved it!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Life With the Saints?

    There wasn't really just one memorable moment in this book. Each chapter dove into another Saint. Each time I turned the book on I was taken into their world and given a preview of them and their lives. I was also on James Martins personal journey as he met each saint not unlike you would meet a new friend and create a relationship with them.


    Any additional comments?

    I am currently going through the RCIA program at my Catholic church and am going to be baptized this Easter Vigil. During my class I was told that I could choose a saint to be named after for my confirmation. I knew about saints but felt like there where thousands to choose from and didn't know where to start.

    I found this book and it was such a blessing. It taught me about a whole slew of saints. It also got me excited to keep learning about more saints and see how I can live better through their experiences.

    I loved this book and can't wait to read it again to find things that I missed.

    Like every other hobbit, Bilbo Baggins likes nothing better than a quiet evening in his snug hole in the ground, dining on a sumptuous dinner in front of a fire. But when a wandering wizard captivates him with tales of the unknown, Bilbo becomes restless. Soon he joins the wizard’s band of homeless dwarves in search of giant spiders, savage wolves, and other dangers. Bilbo quickly tires of the quest for adventure and longs for the security of his familiar home. But before he can return to his life of comfort, he must face the greatest threat of all.

    What did you love best about The Hobbit?

    I loved the descriptive imagery. My imagination went crazy with all the amazing scenes that were described in this book and the detailed characters. I loved it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My favorite part in the story was the interaction between Mr. Baggins and Golhem. It made me laugh so hard.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    Spoke clearly and was not afraid to sing the songs in the book which surprised me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It really was. I never wanted to press that pause button.


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book, highly recommended to read before you go see the movie and have your imagination ruined
