"St. Francis was above all things a great giver; and he cared chiefly for the best kind of giving which is called thanksgiving.... He knew that the praise of God stands on its strongest ground when it stands on nothing. He knew that we can best measure the towering miracle of the mere fact of existence if we realize that but for some strange mercy we should not even exist.... From him came a whole awakening of the world and a dawn in which all shapes and colors could be seen anew." - G. K. Chesterton

Hard to follow
What I could focus on was brilliant but it rambled a bit. I was hoping for more of the story of Saint Francis’s life. I was left wanting to know more details about his actual story. I like to listen to my books while I work this one didn’t work well for that. All said and done I’m glad I listened. I learned some really interesting things and Chesterton is incredibly intelligent.
