In his quest to minister to the needs of the poor, Vincent counseled and challenged some of the key figures in French politics." "Vincent de Paul, the Trailblazer, describes Vincent's childhood, his education, his life as a young priest, his skills as an organizer and manager, and his commitment to serving the physical and spiritual needs of the poor. This authoritative biography is lively enough to interest general readers and detailed enough to appeal to scholars of French and church history."--Jacket."
