Item Description...
"Set All Afire"- Saint Francis Xavier's life is, in itself, a dramatic story. With humility and deep religious conviction, the famous Catholic novelist Louis de Wohl takes us into the mind and heart of this great missionary and saint who went by order of St. Ignatius of Loyola to "set all afire" in the Orient. Louis de Wohl captivates the reader as he follows Xavier's life from student days in Paris, through his meeting with Ignatius, his rather reluctant conversion, and his travels as one of the first Jesuits. The story takes the reader from Europe to Goa, India, Malaysia, Japan, and finally, to an island off the coast of China, where the exiled Xavier dies virtually alone. The book captures the dramatic struggles and inspiring zeal of this remarkable saint, giving at the same time an enthralling picture of the age in which he lived.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
DeWohl's finest?  Sep 15, 2007
Of the six or seven DeWohl books I've read, I think 'Set All Afire' is the most enduring. In it, DeWohl employs his usual style of 'historical fiction' where he weaves fictional dialogue and details into the factual framework of St. Francis Xavier's life.

And this is no ordinary life. St. Francis was a brilliant european university student who bumped into St. Ignatius. His subsequent conversion and missionary journey to the far east is the stuff of legends. Under constant threat, he converted entire islands to Christianity and penetrated walls no westerner had ever crossed.

DeWohl captures the essence of Xavier so effectively that it feels as though you know the saint personally. And the story is written in such an engrossing manner that you lose yourself in the journey. The pages begin to blur into each other and the twists and turns become alternately joyous and haunting. When is the last time you burned the midnight oil to read about a saint?

Highly Recommended without reservation.

Set All Afire: A Novel About Saint Francis Xavier   Feb 19, 2006
Great Novel. Great Saint. Catholic Bishop and priests still have mission problems today in India and other places in the world, but Saint Francis Xavier was able to baptize so many thousands five hundred years ago. This novel should be a recommended to all Catholics so that they would understand the great mission of Jessuit order. Otherwise, the Mormon is going to out pace the Catholic in missionary works.
Remarkable  Aug 16, 2003
This is a great book whether you know much about St Francis or not. It's a wonderfully written book. De Wohl really knew what he was doing when he wrote this! You'll read right through it and yet be learning so many spiritual things at the same time!
