Summary:
"No two lives are more interesting or more diverse than those of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Thomas Aquinas.

Abstract:

"No two lives are more interesting or more diverse than those of St. Francis of Assisi and St. Thomas Aquinas. The two stand at almost the opposite sides of how to understand and live the same Christian life. The St. Francis book is especially significant today because it addresses itself on how to reform a corrupt culture, while the St. Thomas book is important because it addresses the problem of disordered minds. Chesterton makes philosophy intelligible and poverty rich. No two short books get at the heart of things better or in a more delightful manner." [James V. Schall].
