About the Author

Gilbert Keith Chesterton was born in London, England, in 1874. He went on to study art at the Slade School, and literature at University College in London. Chesterton wrote a great deal of poetry, as well as works of social and literary criticism. Among his most notable books are "The Man Who Was Thursday", a metaphysical thriller, and "The Everlasting Man", a history of humankind's spiritual progress. After Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922, he wrote mainly on religious topics such as "Orthodoxy" and "Heretics". Chesterton is most known for creating the famous priest-detective character Father Brown, who first appeared in "The Innocence of Father Brown". Chesterton died in 1936 at the age of 62. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Kindle Edition
This biography of St. Francis lets the reader enter into aspects neglected by many other writers (G. K. C. sees things that very few else realise) and does so with great charm and wit. Undoubtly this book is a master piece of literature and a source of spirituality. What an insight into the figure of St. Francis, MARAVELOUS!

I guess this book is hard to read but requires tenacity and a desire to master this intellectual book. St Francis is a good follower of Jesus so I want to read more.

Though I have studied Saint Francis extensively, including the early documents that detail his life, I found Chesterton's presentation valuable.

Antiquated period piece, rambling exercise in out-dated - not to mention heavily biassed - history. Sample before you buy. Even at only a buck I wish I had.

Book is difficult reading. But it also contains many errors in punctuation and grammar so I would say it is poorly edited. One must know something concrete about St Francis in order to fully comprehend the material in Chesterton's book.
