 General Description:

This warm, richly detailed biography brings the beloved saint alive in all his human and profoundly spiritual dimensions.

"God's Fool is a labor of love, a quest to discover the nature of a man who inspired so many throught the ages . . . (Mr. Green) tells it, as he does all the great legends, in detail and with gusto." - New York Times

"Green has produces a radiant life of St. Francis of Assisi, one that no else could have written . . . like carefully chosen glasses of many colors and stains, arranged with art . . . and lifted . . . so that the sun streams through." - Boston Globe

"Julien Green's book . . . is beautifully written, well-researched, and altogether a masterpiece. Readers of it have the priviliedge not just of learning all about St. Francis, but of seeming to participate  in his sublimely crazy ministry. To say that it is finely done is not enough; it is enchanting." - Malcolm Muggeridge
