"Few overviews of Christian history can rival the IVP Histories' winning mix of summary and storytelling. Aimed at a general audience, these expertly written books contain much to delight and inform even this long-time student of Christian history. Their size makes them easy to begin reading, and their beautiful images and clear, colorful writing make them hard to put down. A treasure!"--Chris Armstrong, managing editor, Christian History and Biography

I was thoroughly impressed (not to mention frequently moved) by Galli's handling of Francis' story. Mark Galli manages to tell the story in a way that is fresh, engaging, and thought-provoking. This book (and all the books in this series) is a very attractive little volume with high-gloss pages and full-color artwork placed throughout. In short, if I were to recommend a biography of Francis to anybody wanting to understand this great Saint, this would be it.--Wyman Richardson, Walking Together, January 28, 2008

Reseña del editor:

Written in a lively and engaging style, Francis of Assisi and His World tells the story of Francis from his hedonistic youth to his emergence as a Christian leader of great charisma and intensity. The saint revealed here is not the romantic free spirit of popular imagination, but a complex and contentious figure who combined a deep mysticism with radical commitment and, above all, sought to glorify God, the creator. For all those fascinated and intrigued by this most elusive of men, this is a book to enjoy for the story it tells and for the beauty of its art and illustration.
