Portraits in Faith and Freedom

 Bethlehem Books is bringing back this series of biographies originally made available in the 1950’s and 60’s by publishers who wished to introduce young people to a wide range of arresting and faithful Catholic lives.
 Slightly edited now for the modern reader, these biographies present key people and events from the past that help us reflect anew on the meaning of freedom. They depict how powerfully men and women of faith have formed and influenced the world in which they live.
