    This biography of St. Francis examines the life of a pure artist, a man whose whole life was a poem. Yet St. Francis also acknowledged the mystic responsibility to communicate his divine experience. Chesterton examines the existence of the pure and the mystic artist in one man. The result is an understanding of St. Francis in both body and soul, two essential aspects because the Saint saw religion as a kind of love afair; both spiritual and material.

    I would have relished a good book on St Franscis; this is not it.

    In this stunning new book, Malcolm Gladwell takes us on an intellectual journey through the world of "outliers"--the best and the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks the question: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing.

    as usual, Malcolm Gladwell gets your attention and keeps it. Well worth listening to and going back and listening again.

  • Saint Thomas Aquinas, the Dumb Ox

    • UNABRIDGED (6 hrs and 6 mins)

    Careless about dress and demeanor and other worldly fripperies, St. Thomas was a man who enjoyed banquets, conviviality, jokes and pranks. His inner certitude aboutreligious truth permitted him to accept the world and its freedom and it endowed him with a childlike innocence. In what many consider to be his best work, G.K. Chesterton portrays St. Thomas in a light that few have imagined.

    Story

    G K Chesterton was probably a good writer---no he was not. If you enjoy listening or reading rambling thoughts that never seem to stay on track with the topic, then you will most certainly enjoy this or any of his other works. The narrator was able to add to the dullness by enjoying his voice more than the work he was reading.
