    Saint Francis of Assisi is one of the most influential men in the whole of human history. This acclaimed biography of Saint Francis examines the life of a pure artist, a man “whose whole life was a poem.” Here is the Saint Francis who prayed and danced with pagan abandon, who talked to animals, and who invented the crèche. Yet Francis also acknowledged the mystic responsibility to communicate his divine experience. Chesterton examines the existence of the pure eccentric and the devout mystic in one man, offering an understanding of Saint Francis in both body and soul. It has been said that G. K. Chesterton converted to Catholicism in 1922 because “only the Roman Church could have produced a Saint Francis of Assisi.” This biography, published shortly after Chesterton’s conversion, is universally considered the best appreciation of Francis’ life, one that gets to the heart of the matter.

    “You call him a Dumb Ox; I tell you that the Dumb Ox will bellow so loud that his bellowing will fill the world.”—Albertus Magnus Dubbed the “Dumb Ox” by his classmates for his shyness, Saint Thomas Aquinas proved to be possessed of the rarest brilliance, justifying the faith of his teacher, Albertus Magnus, and sparking a revolution in Christian thought. Chesterton’s unsurpassed examination of Aquinas’ thinking makes his philosophy accessible to listeners of any generation. Étienne Gilson, the twentieth century’s foremost authority on Aquinas, has said of this work, “I consider it as being without possible exception the best book ever written on Saint Thomas. Nothing short of genius can account for such an achievement.”

    Saint Augustine’s contributions to Christian theology are second to no other postapostolic author in the whole sweep of church history. Yet alongside his doctrinal treatises, Augustine tells a story of his life devoted to Christ as his only satisfaction. The Confessions is at once the autobiographical account of Augustine’s life of Christian faith and at the same time a compelling theology of Christian spirituality for everyone. Among the most important classics in Western literature, it continues to engage modern readers through Augustine’s timeless illustrations and beautiful prose. Augustine’s Confessions is a book to relish the first time through and then profoundly enjoy over a lifetime of revisiting. This accessible and accurate translation of The Confessions comes alive with Simon Vance’s narration. Vance is an award-winning audiobook narrator with hundreds of titles to his credit, including classics by Charles Dickens, H. G. Wells, and Robert Louis Stevenson.
