Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims

Fascinating! This article is an interview with the author of a book on Francis’ efforts to convert the Muslims in his time. One review of the book comments:

“If you’re tired of portraits of St. Francis as little more than a Birkenstock-clad hippie, a Peace Corps social worker, or an effeminate tofu-eating Green Party activist, read this book,” wrote Dr. Philip Blosser on his blog.

That’s recommendation enough for me.
