Synopses & Reviews
How did we come to revere this thirteenth-century Italian merchant's son as a saint? This penetrating meditation provides what may be the best answer yet, by gently but sure-handedly cutting through every pious legend to discover what is timeless and universally true about Saint Francis.
First published in France, this poetic meditation on the life of Francis of Assisi and the power of humility is a modern variation on the saint's life.
