 About the Book 

How did we come to revere this thirteenth-century Italian merchants son as a saint? Why does his image still compel us after six hundred years, when what remains of him is really only a handful of facts and a few legends? This penetrating meditationMoreHow did we come to revere this thirteenth-century Italian merchants son as a saint? Why does his image still compel us after six hundred years, when what remains of him is really only a handful of facts and a few legends? 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. Christian Bobins thoroughly original book reveals a man whose strength is inseparable from his humility, whose radical casting aside of wealth, honor, and even personal identity is the secret of his intimacy with God, the elusive and enigmatic Most Low.
