St. John Fisher, martyred by Henry VIII, was considered the most holy and learned Bishop in all Christendom during his life. Fisher was a great source of inspiration and strength for fellow martyr St. Thomas More, who followed Fisher's lead in standing against Henry, and even the humanist Erasmus had the highest regard for Fisher, calling him "the best scholar in his nation, and its most saintly prelate".
This new translation of Fisher's commentaries on the seven penitential psalms makes available for the first time ever in modern English this great saint's powerful, inspiring insights on these beautiful and moving psalms. St. John Fisher was a pastor and spiritual director whose zeal was always for the sanctity of souls. These commentaries promote a Scripture-based spirituality and a greater use of the Sacrament of Confession.
In addition to the commentaries, this book includes a wonderful biography and introduction to Fisher's life and writings by the translator, Anne Barbeau Gardiner, a highly regarded scholar and author.
"St. John Fisher is truly a model for our troubled times, and a very powerful preacher! This is rock solid biblical teaching at its best."

"The English-speaking world is richly blessed by this new publication in modern idiom of the great work by heroic Bishop Saint John Fisher."
