Description

The Francis of Assisi in these pages is a man of struggle and suffering, a man God-possessed.”—Saturday Review

“The writing . . . is direct and vigorous.”—Commonweal

“The novel is strong, deep, and moving. . . . a penetration into the mystery and wonder of life.”—San Francisco Chronicle

The protean Greek author Nikos Kazantzakis retells the story of the most beloved of saints—Francis of Assisi, who permanently changed the way people think about following God. Drawing on the traditional stories of the saint’s life, Kazantzakis infuses the tale with a fervent vision that is uniquely his own, highlighting the saint’s heroicsingle-mindedness in the face of extreme physical and spiritual suffering. He portrays the saint as a great lover and inspiring leader who embraced radical poverty in the face of many obstacles and temptations while achieving a way of life marked by epic generosity.
