Read full description of the books:
This is Chesterton's touching take on one of the most beloved and celebrated saints in the Christian calendar, Saint Francis of Assini. Contrasting Francis's principled asceticism and tender sentiments with the arcane savagery of the Middle Ages, Chesterton reveals the extent to which Francis' love of women and animal kind made him a thinker and Christian practitioner that was truly ahead of his time.

Read information about the authorGilbert Keith Chesterton (1874-1936) was born in London, educated at St. Paul’s, and went to art school at University College London. In 1900, he was asked to contribute a few magazine articles on art criticism, and went on to become one of the most prolific writers of all time. He wrote a hundred books, contributions to 200 more, hundreds of poems, including the epic Ballad of the White Horse, five plays, five novels, and some two hundred short stories, including a popular series featuring the priest-detective, Father Brown. In spite of his literary accomplishments, he considered himself primarily a journalist. He wrote over 4000 newspaper essays, including 30 years worth of weekly columns for the Illustrated London News, and 13 years of weekly columns for the Daily News. He also edited his own newspaper, G.K.’s Weekly.
Chesterton was equally at ease with literary and social criticism, history, politics, economics, philosophy, and theology.
