Frank M. Rega shows that far from being a pacifist, St. Francis not only supported the Fifth Crusade, but also personally accompanied the Crusaders in order to convert the Muslims. Rega describes in stunning detail the historic meeting between Sr. Francis and the Sultan of Egypt, showing that Sr. Francis' goal was the conversion of the Muslims, and not simply "dialoging" as an end in itself. While the focus of the author is the encounter, the book also includes, a comprehensive biography of this great saint. Read how, St. Clare of Assisi left her aristocratic world to become St. Francis' follower, how Francis originated the Christmas manger, and about the moment he received the stigmata.
