    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.

    JB says: "Boring narrator"
    "Francis is Obscured"
    Overall

    This book was disappointing in that Chesterton spent more time in self apology, and justifying his remarks than in describing Staint Francis. In trying to be intellectually authentic the book misses the warmth and humanity of the Saint.
