4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mr Stephen J Gillham on 6 July 2005
Format: Paperback
This book takes very seriously the elevation of Fr Kolbe to the status of martyr. However, it typifies the worst of romantic writing in the Roman Church. Sadly, there are few facts to furnish a book this long and so the author pads it out with cursory accounts and quaisi-poetic styles which do no justice to the facts.
Fr Kolbe's death and life attest to no less than martyrdom - the sad fact is that this book makes his life seem relatively boring and mundane -it is a litarary experiment that reflects a hagiogrpahy of the 1950's.
A shorter book with more facts and less authorial interpretation would have bene more satisfying.
Sorry, but this book really left me irrate - but I battled through as St Maximilliam is one of my heroes and so little has been writtne.

Simply excellent 1 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Maximilian Kolbe was one of the 20th century's greatest witnesses to truth and what it means to be fully human, an extraordinarily courageous man, and yet so humble that few will have heard of him. This book is superb in conveying his greatness, and what it means to say that someone is a great saint. Suffering from chronic tuberculosis and with less than one full lung's capacity, he went as a missionary to Japan where he published his first newspaper within a month, in Japanese. During the war, his monastery gave shelter to 1,500 Jews. When the Gestapo were taking him and other Franciscan brothers to Aushwitz, he managed to stay cheerful saying that for once, their mission was paid for by someone else. What mission? Survivors of all beliefs remember his constant smile, his kindness in the dark of the night (he would go to the side of the dying to comfort them). In the end, he volunteered to die of starvation in the place of a young father so he might live to see his family again. When it comes to witnessing Christ, Kolbe was simply awesome. Inspiring yet sober. In one word, moving.

"Forget Not Love" is Special 19 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Forget Not Love" is the story of St. Maximilian Kolbe, the Polish Franciscan who offered to die in the place of a married man at Auschwitz, yet this book is about so much more. It creates a portrait of Kolbe as a real human being, it tells of one man's zeal for his faith and country, and it is about what love really is. This book is one of the best I have read on St. Maximilian. Frossard's beautiful writing is an added plus. I HIGHLY reccomend this book to all!

A Real Saint! 28 Feb. 2008
By Daniel Ruskoski - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you want to know what it means to "Love" as the Gospel of Christ tells us, read this book. Faith, Hope and Love are lived in Saint Kolbe's life like no other. I have a new role model in Saint Kolbe.
