By G.K. Chesterton
Here, together in a single volume, are the two biographies that many critics consider among Chesterton's best, and the best short portraits ever written of these two great saints. Saint Francis of Assisi is a profoundly Catholic work, explaining and illuminating the life of Saint Francis in a way no other biography has. The spiritual kinship the author felt with his subject enables the reader to delve into insights on the character of Assisi's Poverello that have eluded many.
Saint Thomas Aquinas is enriched by the author's unique ability to see the world through the saint's eyes, a fresh and animated view that shows us Aquinas as no other biography has. G. K. colorfully elaborates the intellectual climate in which the Angelic Doctor worked. Acclaimed as the best book ever written on Aquinas by such outstanding Thomists as Etienne Gilson and Anton Pegis, this brilliant biography will completely capture the reader.
