    Francis of Assisi was a rebellious, reveling young man. After a profound conversion experience, he became the most popular saint in history. Jon Sweeney sheds new light on this familiar tale. Moreover, he demonstrates that Francis himself became a conversion experience for all of Christian history, reviving the Church and revolutionizing how we think about the poor and marginalized, our relationship to the created world, and even our own mortality.

    At the close of the tumultuous Middle Ages, there lived a man who seemed destined from birth to save the world. His name was Peter Morrone, a hermit, founder of a religious order, and depending on to whom you talk, a reformer, an instigator, a prophet, a coward, a saint, and possibly the victim of murder. A stroke of fate would, practically overnight, transform this humble servant of God into the most powerful man in the Catholic Church.
