There are many editions of the writings of Francis, and biographies about him, but here in one volume are both, plus the complete text of the late medieval work The Little Flowers, which did more to establish the legend of the man than any other work. This ?Paraclete Giants? edition includes the complete Road to Assisi, Paul Sabatier's groundbreaking biography of Francis, first published in French in 1894 and reissued and annoted in English translation in 2002; the complete Francis in His Own Words: The Essential Writings; and The Little Flowers, thus offering the best introduction to St. Francis yet available. ?It is not simply that Francis's ideals are worth recounting, but that his life was so extraordinary. He was fully human?like each of us in our awkwardness, insecurities, and fear?but he was also perhaps the purest example we have seen of a person striving to do what Jesus taught his disciples.? ?Jon M.
