Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The devotion to God St Francis had is infectious. It has challenged me and the spirit in which this book was written is of showing the reader how dependent he was on God. The struggle of sin, temptation and overcoming evil are all mentioned, as well as fruits of the spirit. Francis did what the Word says and the eccentric encounters he has in this book show how involved God is in His creation. It's not a chronological biography and to me it is best read with an open mind not dwelling too much on factual accuracy. Although it must be said that I don't doubt the authenticity of how God answered prayer and intervened in peoples lives. This was one Spirit filled Christian. Be inspired and challenged to live a life of simplicity and dependency on God.

Did everything in this book happen? The stories range from the mundane to the extraordinary. Are they all true? It is better to think of them in terms of mythology and what they can teach us. GK Chesterton, who wrote the best biography on St. Francis, says of how it is the attitude of Francis towards the events recounted as the 'little flowers' rather than the events themselves, which matters. And it is just this attitude, of immeasurable joy and an utter lack of greed, that marks him out as one of the few great people ever to walk the earth. We can still learn from him today.
