Publisher's Summary

A novel about the early days of Saint Camillus de Lellis, who was at first a rough, hot-tempered mercenary soldier before finding God and eventually becoming a saint. The story focuses on his conversion rather than on his holiness afterward. 

At last...a saint for strugglers! Soldiering, gambling, brawling, drinking. As a young man, Saint Camillus excelled at them all. Add to that his fiery temper and innate knack for getting in trouble and Camillus de Lellis seems the last person who could ever achieve holiness! But God had plans for the stubborn young soldier whether Camillus liked it or not.  

This fast-paced and inspiring story of the wayward soldier of fortune who became an intrepid soldier of Christ will appeal even to those who don't normally like to listen to audiobooks!

Critic Reviews

"This novel for adult and young adult readers will introduce them to a great saint - a physical giant who had to contend with many personal struggles, much weakness, and repeated failures before he could become a moral giant. The story of Camillus de Lellis' conversion will leave no reader unmoved, and those that feel hopeless about themselves will find new hope, a hero, and a friend in Christ." (Michael O'Brien, best-selling author)
