Our lives are weaved together by God. Throughout the centuries, saints have responded to God's call, and they continue to serve as models for us as we strive to be faithful disciples of Jesus. In Letting Go and Letting God, Kathleen Atkinson features one person from each century who attempted to listen to the still, small voice of God. Atkinson tells us that "some periods of history were flourishing times for mystics, missionaries and saints; while other times were undistinguished." In this book, the author attempts "to balance male and female personalities, various ethnicities and economic backgrounds, people who were actively involved in the world around them, and those who were inner travelers from their monastic cell."
