Here is the book that takes St. Francis of Assisi "out of the birdbath"" and places him where he really is: eat the heart of human and divine experience for Christian and non-Christian people all over the world. Here are the thoughts and visions of some of the greatest writers and artists of the past eight centuries, as they confront the enduring mysteries of a wealthy small-town merchant's son who became a "mirror of Christ." Multi-media format - fiction, essays, poetry, journalism, songs, paintings, drawings, photographs and more. from book jacket
