A fascinating study of the encounters between on of the Church's greatest and most daringly imaginative saints, and some of the most inveterate enemies Christendom had ever known. This book is full of lessons for contemporary Christians engaged in efforts at 'dialogue' with Muslims, in whatever form those 'dialogues' take. --Robert Spencer
This is a rare and daring approach to the life of St. Francis and one that is so necessary in our world at this time. --Fr. Angelus Shaughnessy, O.F.M. Cap.
