Some are well-known, like Saints Augustine, adoctor of the church, and his mother, Monica, whileothers may be unknown to us, such as Blessed DaudiOkelo and Blessed Jildo Irwa, twentieth-century Ugandanmartyrs. Regardless of popularity, each holy personincluded in African Saints, African Stories displaysperseverance in faith and can inspire us all.Dr. Camille Brown has chosen to share forty stories fromhundreds, some for the first time, in this book.
