Description
 
This book, originally written in French, removes the many layers of dirt and varnish that have obscured this man. The author paints a very realistic view of this humble monk with humorous vignettes of his fellow disciples. The mystical aspect of Francesco's, overly romanticized life, is put into proper perspective. It is a very refreshing look at a humble servant of God.

Reviewers have judged "St. Francis of Assisi: A Biography" to be that rarity among books about saints: a popular work of inspiring spiritual reading which is also an acclaimed work of modern scholarship. With spiritual insight and careful historical judgment, Omer Englebert blends the many facets of St. Francis' personality into a portrait of a saint who can inspire men and women today.
