Note that I used the word "hagiography" as opposed to biography. A biography tries to tell the story of a person in terms of the details of his life, with the purpose of telling historical details. A hagiography tells the story of a saint with the purpose of inspiring faith in readers. Charles Warren Stoddard wrote a hagiography.
Don't expect this book to be like biographies where events are arranged by chronological order. Stoddard arranges chapters by topic, focusing on specific aspects of the saint's life. You will see chapters concentrating on Anthony's preaching, another on his miracles, another on his contemplative prayer life, and so on.
That being said, the text does what it is supposed to - it captures the imagination and inspires devotion. I heartily recommend this book to anyone who wants to know a little more about Saint Anthony.
as he's helped me (especially with faith, and lost items!) then you owe it to him to learn more about
his wonderful life and sacrifices, and all those miracles he worked in our Lord's name, to his glory.
