The captivating story of the world’s favorite saint is now retold for a modern audience by one of the great novelists of our time.

Perhaps more than any other figure in Christian history since Jesus Christ, Saint Francis of Assisi has captured our imagination, for his is a story of extreme self-sacrifice, of love to God and man. How could this wealthy, handsome youth cast away all the advantages that were his by birth and choose instead a career of poverty and humility? How could he attract members of all strata of society to his mission? And how, when his order became established throughout Europe, could he renounce great personal power and humbly continue his life’s work?

Here is Francis, from his twelfth-century boyhood to his life as a missionary roaming the very boundaries of the known world. Here too are the men and women who followed him―Bernard de Quintavalle, the rich businessman; Peter Cathanii, the lawyer; Brother Giles, the farmer’s son; Lady Clare; and so many others―all drawn together by the personal magnetism and humble faith of their leader, all re-created by bestselling novelist Elizabeth Goudge against a rich medieval canvas.

Book Description:

The ever-fascinating life of Saint Francis of Assisi, retold for a modern audience by one of the great novelists of our time.

About the Author:

Elizabeth Goudge (1900–1984) was one of the most popular British novelists of the twentieth century. Her Green Dolphin Street, a #1 New York Times bestseller, was made into an Academy Award–winning film. She also wrote many acclaimed children’s books―in 1946 she won the Carnegie Medal for The Little White Horse, which J. K. Rowling has said was her favorite book as a child. Elizabeth Goudge’s Christian spirituality pervades all her work, but nowhere as explicitly as in her books God So Loved the World: The Story of Jesus Christ and My God and My All: The Story of Saint Francis of Assisi.
