G.K. Chesterton lends his witty, astute and sardonic prose to the much loved figure of Saint Francis of Assis. Grounding the man behind the myth he states "however wild and romantic his gyrations might appear to many, [Francis] always hung on to reason by one invisible and indestructible hair.... The great saint was sane.... He was not a mere eccentric because he was always turning towards the center and heart of the maze; he took the queerest and most zigzag shortcuts through the wood, but he was always going home."

Review: "his opinions shine from every page. The reader is rewarded with many fresh perspectives on Francis..." -- Franciscan, May 2002
