Chesterton once said he joined the Catholic Church because only the Catholic Church could produce a St. Francis of Assisi. This collection is comprised of three books in one, and you can see why they belong together. Chesterton's biographies of St.Francis and St. Thomas Aquinas stand in brilliant relief: the nature-loving, mystical vagabond who was delightfully indifferent to books, and the staunch and scholarly philosopher, aristocrat-turned-friar, who approached God primarily through his mind. ...more

It's Chesterton; 'nuff said. Why are you reading goodreads reviews when you could be reading his work--any work? A feast for the mind and spirit.

(Note: In this volume, I have so far only read _St. Francis of Assisi_ and _The Everlasting Man_. )

As noted by the title, three books in a volume. I've completed The Everlasting Man, somewhat a difficult read, some humor and certainly a good book recommended to read.
Started St Thomas Aquinas, have yet to finish.
