St. Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims
by Frank M. Rega, S.F.O.
|"The most important book on St. Francis in English, in
recent years." Brother Alexis Bugnolo, Editor, the
Franciscan Archive, www.franciscan-archive.org/.
"This is a rare and
daring approach to the life of St. Francis and one that is so necessary in our world at
this time." From the Preface by Father Angelus M. Shaughnessy, O.F.M.
Capuchin and EWTN Priest.
|". . . ecumenical revisionists are now seeking to deconstruct the
great Franciscan and refashion him into a multi-cultural icon, as forewarned in this . . .
book, which concentrates on his Islamic encounters during the 5th Crusade."
Rod Pead - Editor, "Christian Order."
|"In his latest book, Mr. Rega gives us a more in-depth insight into the life of one of our greatest saints. St. Francis was so much more Francis' mission, after his conversion, was to save souls, even at great, personal risk." Carolyn E. Protin, Regional Minister, St. Margaret of Cortona Region, Secular Franciscan Order.|

St. Francis of Assisi: Not a Birkenstock-Clad Hippie But a Converter of Muslims
St. Francis of Assisi accompanied the Crusaders to Egypt on the Fifth
Crusade, and boldly walked right into the Muslim camp in a spectacular attempt to preach
Christianity to the sultan and his followers. Frank M. Rega shows that St. Francis was a
supporter of the armed Crusade, and his goal was the conversion of the Muslims, rather
than simply "dialoging" as an end in itself, as some revisionists have
purported. He made such an impact with his preaching, that the sultan rebuffed some
of his own religious advisors, the imams, who were insisting that Islamic law required
that Francis must be beheaded.
No serious devotee or scholar of St. Francis can do without Mr. Rega's important book. Stephen Hand, Editor, tcrnews.blogspot.com.
This book is a must-read for those whose minds have been sullied by the effeminate portrayals of Saint Francis that have been widely circulated. Michael Whitcraft, Editor, TFP Society.
"A fascinating study..." Robert Spencer, author of N.Y. Times Bestseller, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam.
"If you're tired of portraits of St.
Francis as little more than a Birkenstock-clad hippie, a Peace Corps social
"Highly Recommended" Dr. Wm. Zambrano, Editor, The Tribulation Times
