The Life and Times of Francis of Assisi.
Paperback 273 pp
Written by the only American writer elected to The Academie Francaise, God's Fool is an enchanting account of the life and times of St. Francis of Assisi, including a wonderful account of his early family life, when he was considered by family and neighbors to be "crazy." He didn't fair any better in later life with church authorities. Meher Baba said of Francis, "He loved Jesus more than Peter did because he never met Jesus, so his love and his longing were that much greater." If there is a best seller list for metaphysical books, God's Fool tops that list.
