Item Description...
Relates how the gay, courtly young soldier became a knight of Jesus Christ, vowed devotion to Lady Poverty and proved himself the "little brother" to all men and even to the birds and beasts. The son of a wealthy merchant, Saint Francis of Assisi kept company in his youth with a lawless band of young nobles who were bent on having a good time and thought nothing of the comfort of other people. When sickness puts an end to his soldierly ambitions, he turns his back on earthly possessions, much to the disgust of his father, and dons a dust-colored robe and ties a rope around his waist. Traveling barefooted and bareheaded through the hills of Italy he begins his ministry to the outcasts of society: the lepers, the poor, the hungry. He gathers other men to his side to share in his work, including three robbers who feel the transforming power of his love. His powers extend over the animal kingdom as well. He preaches to the birds and he tames the wolf who has been terrorizing the villagers of Gubbio. When he journeys eastward with the Crusaders, he ministers to Saracen and Christian alike. One year at Christmas he presents a living nativity scene to his neighbors, beginning a tradition that has lasted for centuries. One reviewer writes, "We wish this charming book might be the introduction of most children to this medieval saint." Suitable for children ages 8 and up.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
For beginners or youth  Jun 27, 2008
In prose directed to 6th-to-8th graders, this is a biography of the life of Giovanni Francesco Bernardone, now known as St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of the environment, animals and Italy. A simplistic account his life, the book gives little insight into the person that was and is a powerful influence on Christianity and Western Civilization. His motives are not remarked, but his experience within a culture driven by hierarchies, vendettas, revenge and exclusivity do give an idea of what Francis fought against. A good-quality copy and just what I paid for, there are no complaints, only a little disappointment. Youth vocabulary has plenty of room for reflection, depth and a purposeful portrait. Even for this young, this is an appetizer and not an entree.
