No words of St. Joseph are recorded In Scripture. In fact, little mention is made of him there. Yet, despite these seeming limitations, the Church nonetheless possesses an indescribably rich knowledge of St. Joseph and of his cultus. This book will astound most readers both with its scope and with its profundity. Based mainly on Scripture, but supported also by Tradition and the depositions of saints, it is a carefully reasoned analysis of the entirety of that great saint's role in the history of Salvation and the life of the Church. Includes details about his spiritual life and noble lineage; how he was prefigured in the Old Testament; his relationship to Mary and Jesus; why he has been named by Pope Pius IX "The Patron of the Universal Church;" and so forth. Many beautiful insights.
Clearly stated and backed up with numerous facts from diverse sources that I would not have at my disposal. Very informative and not difficult to read or follow up on. A joyful learning experience.

Excellent so far, am not very far into the book yet.

There is not a lot written about Saint Joseph to understand his life and the role he played as Jesus' foster father. I'm glad I found this book. It's a treasure.
The Life and Glories of St. Joseph

A book to be truly treasured. St. Joseph, a man of faith and virtue, blessed by God.
Life and Imaginings about Joseph
Gaylord Gartman(June 21, 2014)
No bibliography and many quotes from Maria d Agreda with no references. Joseph was awesome but even pulling a rabbit out of a hat wouldn't get all that's imagined in this volume.
Would love more books like this one

The complexity of the writing can sometimes be a little overwhelming. I am a very educated person and have to read it in "small doses" or I feel like I am not getting everything I should be from the information. I will not give up, however! Cons: Too complex at times; Pros: Beautiful cover, Very detailed, Very informative, Would like more like this
