      Gilbert Keith Chesterton [29 May – 14 June ] wrote approximately 80 books, essays, short stories and several plays, and today he’s probably best know for the Father Brown BBC TV Series staring Mark Williams as Father Brown and Sorcha Cusack as Mrs McCarthy. GK Chesterton’s book about St Francis of AssisiContinue reading. I loved the radio presentation of Chesterton's St. Francis of Assisi. So I ordered the book, not expecting it to be printed in the 8&1/2 X 11 format. A book this huge around, and written 1 huge column to a page is very difficult to read, as you have to continuously turn your head vs. just tracking with your eyes to get across each line of print.4/5(39).

    The patron saint of animals, birds, and the environment, Francis of Assisi led the rediscovery of nature in the Christian West. This magnificent spiritual biography by the phenomenally popular G. K. Chesterton—a convert to Catholicism—chronicles the beloved saint's calling, his extraordinary life, and his influence in the Church. Although written almost years ago, the book by G. K. Chesterton shows the remarkable life of St. Francis. Chesterton was a big admirer of Francis; the life and preaching of Francis was a factor in his conversion to Roman Catholicism. I am not going to convert, but I am also a huge admirer!/5(67).

This book puts his life into the perspective of what the times were like just after the Dark Ages, and how the sight of a begger seeking alms changed his entire life.4/5.
