Banyen's Description: 

When a small village was plagued by a wild wolf, it is told that a humble friar named Francis came and met the predator with nothing but his gentle words—and turned the wolf from a menace to a welcome citizen. This graceful man, who spoke to each part of creation as a sister or brother, has become one of the most beloved of all saints. Saint Francis of Assisi is an essential devotional reader for forming a personal connection to the spirit of this modest Italian sage. Mirabai Starr compiles stories, prayers, and translations of Francis' writings to help readers discover a nourishing devotion to God and a profound compassion toward all living things. Foreword by Richard Rohr.

An expert on world religions, Mirabai Starr is critically acclaimed for her translations of the Spanish mystics, including Dark Night of the Soul (Riverhead, 2002) and The Interior Castle (Riverhead, 2003). She is the author of God of Love (Monkfish, 2012) and a blogger for The Huffington Post. For more, visit mirabaistarr.com.
