Dr. Ben Wiker, with this EWTN publication, gives readers a deeper understanding of the characters in his popular EWTN series, Saints vs Scoundrels. Their lives are analyzed in fascinating perspective by playing off the characters of other historical figures whose beliefs and standards are diametrically opposed to their own. Machiavelli never met St. Francis of Assisi, for example, but Wiker draws interesting parallels in what these two men might have had to debate with each other. “What if this scoundrel had met this caliber of a saint?” Wiker poses. The result: Saints vs Scoundrels. A great read!
