Dr. Hahn tells the tales of numerous saints (and numerous angels too) in a fashion that’s clean and new. The saints are non secular giants yet with flesh-and-blood fact. they've got powerful, holy ambitions—and robust temptations and competition that has to be conquer. Their tales are awesome and but everyday sufficient to inspire us to stay extra attractive lives. during this telling in their tale, the saints are neither otherworldly nor this-worldly. They exemplify the built-in existence that each Christian is named to live.

Only saints will reside in heaven. we have to be extra just like the saints if we wish to stay in heaven sometime. Dr. Hahn indicates us that our heavenly existence can commence now.
It needs to.
