La fe vivificante de 30 santos nacidos en el continente americano se ilustra en un diálogo vivo y actual que los autores establecen con los santos y santas a quienes se honran como tales en la Iglesia, pueblo de Dios. A lo largo de estas páginas, el lector llega a ver y experimentar el santo como una persona que camina con él y que lo invita a seguir no su ejemplo, sino a Cristo, que es la motivación última de la santidad. Más allá de relatar la historia biográfica—que también se incluye—los relatos contextualizan las cualidades de los santos y santas en el mundo de hoy de tal forma que la santidad se presenta como una posibilidad real para los cristianos de hoy. Este libro es ideal para aquellas personas que deseen comenzar o mejorar su relación con estos cristianos de nuestros países que han alcanzado la corona de la santidad y son una parte muy importante de nuestra familia espiritual. Las historias inspiradoras de estos modelos de vida son fundamentales para el desarrollo de la fe, especialmente entre los jóvenes hispanos. El libro sugiere algunas preguntas para reflexionar, solos o en grupo, y una oración a cada santo o santa. Disponible en inglés y español. The strength and vigor of the Catholic Church are nowhere more visible than in North and South America, where hundreds of millions of people claim the Catholic faith. Saints of the Americas features thirty heroes of this New World faith, with representatives from fifteen countries in South America, Central America, North America, and the Caribbean. Through "conversations" between the authors and the saints, readers will be inspired by the stories of Catherine Drezel and Elizabeth Ann Seton, who built schools and hospitals in the United States; martyr Óscar Romero from El Salvador; Venezuelan physician and healer José Gregorio Hernández; Peruvian Rose of Lima, the first saint of the Americas; and others. The faith and perseverance of these martyrs and monks, laypeople and clergy, mystics and activists will encourage people today to make a lasting difference in the world.

This book is the result of the project METROPOLE: An Integrated Framework to Analyse Local Decision Making and Adaptive Capacity to Large-Scale Environmental Change: Community Case Studies in Brazil, UK and the US, supported by the Belmont Forum-G8 Initiative Collaborative Research (Coastal Vulnerability, G8MUREFU3 2201-040). The Project METROPOLE was designed to address some important challenges of our time: on one hand, how to reduce the risks from climate change in coastal areas, in view of safeguarding life, assuring the safety of assets and the maintenance of rich ecosystems; and on the other hand, how to improve the interaction between scientists, decision makers and population for a common goal, to prevent alarming projections of sea level rise from being realized. This book focuses on the basis of the project which is anchored in the recognition of the importance of both dialogue and action on climate change involving different actors. Therefore, the participation of decision-makers, the population and representatives of civil and private organizations are key-elements in ensuring measures that might slow down, minimise or even restrict the perverse effects of climate change.

"Some passages are painfully descriptive, others are packed with humor. A zeal for storytelling - a zest for writing." Michael Evans, Publishers Weekly In simple words, this book is about a dream; not being afraid to chase after it, and a challenge or two along the way. This book is about time, hardly an ally to an aging author. This book is also about perseverance, dedication, and long hours of loneliness; not exactly a writer's best friend. For this book is about believing that the author just might be one of those bold enough to catch their dream.
