Item Description...
Overview
A modern variation of the life of Saint Francis of Assisi cuts through the pious legend to uncover what is timeless and universally true about the man who cast aside wealth and honor to humbly serve the world and God. Original.

Publishers Description
Why have we come to revere Francis of Assisi, a simple thirteenth-century Italian merchant's son, as a saint? Why has his appeal endured over eight hundred years and even expanded beyond the world of Catholicism to make him one of the most beloved religious figures of all time? This penetrating meditation on Francis's life gently but sure-handedly cuts through every pious legend to uncover what is timeless and universally true about him. Christian Bobin's unexpected and thoroughly original work presents a compelling image of a man whose power is found in humility, whose radical casting aside of wealth, honor, and even personal identity is inseparable from his overwhelming intimacy with God. Poetic, luminous, utterly hypnotic, The Very Lowly is a unique modern variation on the saint's life that will entrance everyone, whether "religious" or—almost especially—not.
"Every once in a while a book comes along that takes your breath away, leaving you dizzy and delirious. Read this book and you'll understand the importance of paying humble attention to humble things. And finally, read this book because it will teach your soul to sing."—Spirituality and Health

"A singular contemplative exercise. Christian Bobin has given birth to a music that is his alone. One finds oneself entering into this contemplation, into this human nearness, and sharing its happiness."—Le Monde

"This exquisite and moving book not only talks about Saint Francis in a very eloquent way but brings the reader subtly and magically into the very heart of Francis's great mystical love for the world."—Andrew Harvey, author of Son of Man and The Direct Path
Christian Bobin is the author of eighteen books in French, several of them best-sellers, and he is the winner of France's 1993 Grand Prix Catholique de Litterature.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Lovely and haunting  May 6, 2007
I don't know much more about Francis than when I started reading this book--not a lot. So, if you are looking for information on him do not look here. However, if you are looking for a quick, lovely and haunting spiritual biography of anyone--look here first. The passages could apply to anyone on a spiritual quest. If you find yourself at a spiritual impasse, this is an amazing little book to give you an uncanny, introspective kickstart you are not likely to get anywhere else among the mainstream self-help offerings or other high-minded theology that are out there. The only reason I give this 4 stars instead of 5 is that I wish it lasted longer!
 
An inspired and inspiring collection of conceptual philosophy and situational analysis of the Christian life  May 6, 2006
The Very Lowly: A Meditation On Francis Of Assisi by Christian Bobin (winner of the French "Grand Prix Catholique de Litterature") is an inspired and inspiring collection of conceptual philosophy and situational analysis of the Christian life. Providing readers with an accurate and intimate understanding of the human ability to let-go, contemplate, assist, produce and reflect many more attributes of human-nature, The Very Lowly evocatively carries readers through times in a life of change and emotional development presented in a remarkable compilation of the systematic beliefs of Francis Assisi. The Very Lowly is very highly recommended reading Christian readers with an interest in the applied wisdom of St. Francis of Assisi, as well as the remarkable truths behind simple human nature, and how to most strategically confront personal issues throughout our lives.
 
Poetic  May 1, 2006
I can best describe this short book as being "spiritually poetic." While it can certainly be read without knowing alot about St. Francis, you might enjoy it more if you do some background reading beforehand (I recommend "The Lessons from St. Francis: A Monk's Guide to Daily Life," by John Michael Talbot).
