This volume presents a modern edition of Paul Sabatier's classic biography on St. Francis of Assisi. Quotes, comparisons, illustrations, and explanations show the relationship between Sabatier's foundational biography and other great works on Francis, from Dante to G.K. Chesterton. It will serve not only as an informational and engaging introduction to the life of St. Francis, but also as a vehicle for readers to engage personally with Francis, the human being.

I have read a few biographies on St Francis. Each one sheds some interesting detail that other biographers have missed. He has always interested me. I think it is a must read for anyone interested in his life.
