Description
 
Novelized biography of the life and times of St. Anthony as told through the eyes of those who knew him. Each chapter is candidly related by a different narrator.

When St. Francis of Assisi, in the 13th Century, feared the effect, upon his brethren and others, of the self-assured, unoriented and not very profound secular knowledge of the day, he chose St. Anthony to be the first teacher of his Order. Preaching to eager thousands, St. Anthony reconciled the simplicities of St. Francis with sound learning, interpreting the Gospel with burning eloquence and unsurpassed clarity, so that the untutored appreciated him as a good, plain man of God and the literati understood him as an intellectual, modern-minded saint.

We of the 20th Century, often misled by our mechanical progress and bewildered in a too swiftly expanding world of ideas and actions, recognize our own deep need for guidance. In this book, Father Isidore draws us simply and naturally to the great Franciscan teacher.
