    One thought on “Blessed Are the Meek”

    1. A historical novel steeped in the Christian worldview, Blessed are the Meek explores sin and its consequences in the context of the 5th Crusade and the life of Francis of Assisi. Skillfully blending history, legend, a deep Christian spirituality, and great insight into human nature, Kossak has crafted a novel which richly deserves its title, as the entire novel is an exploration of the truth of Jesus' teaching from which the novel takes its name.

    2. Wonderful story about the life of Francis of Assisi. Any Catholic or inquirer should read this book. It's a very good entry-level read for the life of a saint. :)
