Reviews

"Every once in a while a book comes along that takes your breath away, leaving you dizzy and delirious. Read this book and you'll understand the importance of paying humble attention to humble things. And finally, read this book because it will teach your soul to sing."--Spirituality and Health

"A singular contemplative exercise. Christian Bobin has given birth to a music that is his alone. One finds oneself entering into this contemplation, into this human nearness, and sharing its happiness."--Le Monde "This exquisite and moving book not only talks about Saint Francis in a very eloquent way but brings the reader subtly and magically into the very heart of Francis's great mystical love for the world."--Andrew Harvey, author of Son of Man and The Direct Path
