From the dustjacket: The author gives us an unforgettable picture of the saint and of his influence on all succeeding ages: in the Apochrypha and in the writings of Islam as well as in the liturgy, the art, and the everyday life of Catholic families, especially in Canada, of which he is the patron saint. Here, too, is a fascinating account of the history of the saint's relics, which have been treated with the same veneration, superstition, or incredulity that St. John himself meet during his life.
