Saint Francis of Assisi is one of the most influential men in the whole of human history. This acclaimed biography of Saint Francis examines the life of a pure artist, a man "whose whole life was a poem." Here is the Saint Francis who prayed and danced with pagan abandon, who talked to animals, and who invented the crc?he. Yet Francis also acknowledged the mystic responsibility to communicate his divine experience. Chesterton examines the existence of the pure eccentric and the devout mystic in one man, offering an understanding of Saint Francis in both body and soul. It has been said that G. K. Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922 because "only the Roman Church could have produced a Saint Francis of Assisi." This biography, published shortly after Chesterton's conversion, is universally considered the best appreciation of Francis' life, one that gets to the heart of the matter.… (mere)

An attempt to explain St Francis to non-Christians, or even non-Catholics. A decent effort, with many good ideas, sometimes going beyond the topic itself (e.g. the author's astonishment at modern historians treating writers of old chronicles as superstitious, and thus unreliable, when mentioning anything supernatural, yet as completely reliable with regard to all the rest of what they wrote), but as is usual with GKC, there is a lot of exaggeration, wishful thinking, and even idealisation, related to the Middle Ages, and to the Catholic Church.

Quirky, self-aware, brief biography(-ish) of the quirky, self-aware, brief life of a mystic and Christian saint(-ish). ( )

"St. Francis was above all things a great giver; and he cared chiefly for the best kind of giving which is called thanksgiving. . . . He knew that the praise of God stands on its strongest ground when it stands on nothing. He knew that we can best measure the towering miracle of the mere fact of existence if we realize that but for some strange mercy we should not even exist. . . . From him came a whole awakening of the world and a dawn in which all shapes and colors could be seen anew." --G. K. Chesterton
