The definitive story of John Vianney based on the official records from the process of his beatification and canonization. Of humble education and assigned to a forgotten farmers' village, he attracted the whole world to Ars and was named the patron saint of parish priests in 1929. He ate one meal a day, slept only a few hours a night, heard confessions up to 17 hours a day, converted thousands. His body remains incorrupt. A grace-filled story of total love of God! 624 pgs, PB
