    I learned from this book how the life of a genuine seeker of God is one of constant crucifixion Of the total sacrifice of the ego at the altar of the Divine, so that we may partake of that divinity And how intensely humanely superhuman that divinity is The soul suffers with all of suffering humanity, rejoices with all of rejoicing humanity Awesome Tempting, fearful yet a journey to be yearned for Even the yearning is much better than all possessions and attainments which we normally hold d I learned from this book how the life of a genuine seeker of God is one of constant crucifixion Of the total sacrifice of the ego at the altar of the Divine, so that we may partake of that divinity And how intensely humanely superhuman that divinity is The soul suffers with all of suffering humanity, rejoices with all of rejoicing humanity Awesome Tempting, fearful yet a journey to be yearned for Even the yearning is much better than all possessions and attainments which we normally hold dear My profound regards for the author And for St Francis, my reverence has increased a thousand fold Amen

    BOOK God s PauperAuthor Nikos Kazantzakis A flawless masterpiece about the devotion of a true devotee..that is the story of God s Pauper written by Nikos Kazantzakis The epic story of the life of one of the greatest Saints in the world is narrated in a lucid yet heart wrenching fashion that makes the reader one with the pain passion of the man behind the Saint Being a passionate believer student of the Franciscan way of life, I find this book quite in keeping with not only history BOOK God s PauperAuthor Nikos Kazantzakis A flawless masterpiece about the devotion of a true devotee..that is the story of God s Pauper written by Nikos Kazantzakis The epic story of the life of one of the greatest Saints in the world is narrated in a lucid yet heart wrenching fashion that makes the reader one with the pain passion of the man behind the Saint Being a passionate believer student of the Franciscan way of life, I find this book quite in keeping with not only history but also with the current ideas religious personalities have about the pain behind the total annihilation of the ego flesh in the case of Saint Francs of Assisi Kazantzakis in a simple way reveals to the reader not only the life of Saint Francis The writer does us a favour for which I shall be ever grateful to him as a reader..he makes the life of this pauper very REAL We generally find the lives of most of the Christian saints highly above our normal dealings therefore most of the time ignore their life histories as well as their writings which seem rather dogmatic.not in keeping with our practical mind set Kazantzakis is aware of this failing therefore, brings out the true side of Saint Francis of Assisi..the struggling man to become one with his creator It is not the lofty saint that we encounter in this classic work but, the lowly man trapped by his love for God the desires of his flesh which he wishes to overcome The person that we witness in this narrative is the human being that signifies ALL of us with all our faults, yet wishing to love God in perfection sans faults sinful ways.This is not merely a religious document, but a mirror into the heart mind of one of the greatest mystics of the Medieval Age in Europe In fact, I would not be wrong if I stated that this novel is the life story of a revolutionary Saint Francis of Assisi indeed was a revolutionary not only where his thinking was concerned but also his ideals on the way his society was progressing Kazantzakis brings to us that revolutionary.The story is narrated by St Francis close comrade fellow friar Brother Leo who although not all that divinely in tune with God unlike his friend St Francis yet loves St Francis to such an extent that he goes through the worst of situations to prove his loyalty devotion Brother Leo in this novel undergoes the hardships of whipping, self torture, weather changes, sickness, hunger, thirst, mental turmoil etc., all because of his loyalty toward the person he considers to be quite sure about everything heavenly More than just the narrator however, Brother Leo in this novel signifies all our doubts the scepticism that we are born with inthan one way does he bring out his doubts Through him, it is we who are questioning the authenticity of God the divine call of St Francis Just like Brother Leo, we do not question because we think we arethan human.we question because WE ARE HUMAN can a mere human become a saint Can a human give up the longings of the flesh Can a mere human overcome the impossible These are questions posed to us by us throughout the book.The characters in this story may have been moulded in a different way by the author so as not to break the rhythm of the narrative.but they all did exist, this is history, and this is fact Not only was there the ever loyal but doubtful Brother Leo but there was also the loving Saint Clara who followed in St Francis footsteps not only was there a devoted Lady Pica the mother of St Francis but also the crafty Brother Elias who twists the rule of St Francis to his own liking for his own self glory These were REAL people like you me who lived during troubled times yet were asking the same questions about God humanity that we are asking today The author himself has stated in the novel that he has added many stories from his own imagination at times so as to link together certain intricate parts of the legend of this peculiar medieval saint He does so to merge the myth with the truth to bring out the essence of St Francis teachings The extraordinary part of the book is that, the wild passion of the human soul is dramatised to perfection that even if an atheist were to read this book, he would be pulled in with this tide of emotional outbursts The maniacal side of the Saint is seen by us also accepted by us maybe because we realize that he is one of us His passion was for God whereas currently our passion may be for many other concerns like Democracy, elimination of corruption, feminism, Global warming , communalism it could be anything, but we all have our own goals our own personal barometers to assess whether we have achieved our goal The fanatic following of the revolutionary ideals of perfect poverty, perfect chastity perfect obedience by St Francis reminds us of our own fanaticism to our own ideals His extraordinary way of living..his stigmata.his fasts..his bleeding body..his hunger..his yearning for Saint Clara.his semi blindness all shows a level of extreme that was revolutionary for its time age It was not accepted readily of course he resented it much, but did not complain His job was to show the passion of his devotion to the world, which he did which we daydream about too.to show our different ideas to the world which wants us to conform with its own set rules St Francis in the novel in real life never followed the bandwagon but was always standing apart therefore went the distance.The novel finally is a revelation into our own hearts minds..what is our real mission in life To conform to something that is not right or to change the rules.even if it takes us to the brink of insanity..or sainthood

    When this 624 page book landed on my doorstep, I chuckled I ll never find time to finish it, I thought Then I started to read it I couldn t put it down Nikos Kazantzakis does such a great job of pulling in the reader I was hooked I finished it in two days Kazantzakis managed to capture the essence of St Francis a man who many of us can relate to St Francis is portrayed as a glory seeking partier who turned from his ways and brought many to Christ.As I read it, I felt like I was walkin When this 624 page book landed on my doorstep, I chuckled I ll never find time to finish it, I thought Then I started to read it I couldn t put it down Nikos Kazantzakis does such a great job of pulling in the reader I was hooked I finished it in two days Kazantzakis managed to capture the essence of St Francis a man who many of us can relate to St Francis is portrayed as a glory seeking partier who turned from his ways and brought many to Christ.As I read it, I felt like I was walking the journey with St Francis I could picture him wandering around San Damiano begging for stones to rebuild a church that had fallen into disrepair I could see the countryside that he crossed, the people he encountered, and the very first nativity scene It has drawn me closer to this lovable Saint, wanting to learnabout him, and emulate some of his wonderful, faithful qualities

    I think I would have appreciated the bookif I haven t read The Last Temptation of Christ before I was searching for this book for a while and my joy knew no bounds when I found it in the dusty corner of the library.Yes, I very much wanted to fall in love with the Little Pauper But I just have to admit that Saint Francis failed to move me like Last Temptation I admit that my lack of knowledge about Christianity might be a factor Still, that didn t prevent me from loving Last Temptation I think I would have appreciated the bookif I haven t read The Last Temptation of Christ before I was searching for this book for a while and my joy knew no bounds when I found it in the dusty corner of the library.Yes, I very much wanted to fall in love with the Little Pauper But I just have to admit that Saint Francis failed to move me like Last Temptation I admit that my lack of knowledge about Christianity might be a factor Still, that didn t prevent me from loving Last Temptation.As expected the writing is delightful and captivating I especially liked the last portion of the book where Lady Pica came to see her son in his deathbed It is not an easy read and took methan one one month to finish.PS Kazantzakis is still my favorite author and I will read Zorba the Greek for sure

    I ve read this book three times There are many non fiction books about Francis, as there should be He is one of the most important saints in the Catholic world But he is often misunderstood as a kind of love child hippie dancing in ecstasy among the animals Or someone who transcended the Roman Catholic Church Not even close on all counts Nikos Kazantzakis, who wrote Zorba The Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ, among others, clearly loved Francis This is a work of fiction, but al I ve read this book three times There are many non fiction books about Francis, as there should be He is one of the most important saints in the Catholic world But he is often misunderstood as a kind of love child hippie dancing in ecstasy among the animals Or someone who transcended the Roman Catholic Church Not even close on all counts Nikos Kazantzakis, who wrote Zorba The Greek and The Last Temptation of Christ, among others, clearly loved Francis This is a work of fiction, but also one of love and reverence We actually know a lot about Francis, which is remarkable given he lived 900 years ago Kazantzakis manages to delve into the heart of Francis while at the same time stayingor less true to what is historically true Let me say this, because I m having trouble expressing this This book helped methan any other to build a love for Francis that I would never have gotten in a non fiction book Francis is accessible to all but make no mistake that he was a devoted son of the Church. He made sure that the pope approved his radical agenda

    In honor of the new Pope s election, my roommate named his T.V Francis and I finally picked up Nikos Kazantzakis s novel Saint Francis, which has been on my shelf for two years.This book is told in the first person by Brother Leo, the title character s companion The narrator, many of the other characters, and many of the events are true to history Unfortunately, while Francis of Assisi is a compelling figure from history, the character in this book didn t work for me His transformation is to In honor of the new Pope s election, my roommate named his T.V Francis and I finally picked up Nikos Kazantzakis s novel Saint Francis, which has been on my shelf for two years.This book is told in the first person by Brother Leo, the title character s companion The narrator, many of the other characters, and many of the events are true to history Unfortunately, while Francis of Assisi is a compelling figure from history, the character in this book didn t work for me His transformation is too quick and inexplicable and he then spends the entire book torturing himself.After having done nothing worse than eat good food, play music for the ladies, and desire military glory, Francis turns into a hard core ascetic and begins collecting a number of followers, whose undying loyalty to Francis seems under motivated At first he rebuilds a church and shows compassion to lepers, but thereafter he never does anything to help anyone He just starves, freezes, exhausts, and flagellates himself, ultimately leading to his death, which I must rule a suicide.Francis comes across as so heavenly minded he s no earthly good At one point he literally catches on fire and tells his companions not to put it out Unfortunately, they do leading to another 150 pages before he finally kills himself After his inexplicable conversion, his character doesn t change Brother Leo is also totally static, but at least comes across as a bithuman.All of Francis s struggles are internal and seem manufactured Though if you think God wants some people to torture themselves you may disagree There was some tension with Brother Elias, but it never went anywhere I got excited halfway through when the girl he was infatuated with, Clara, showed up again But, after forcing him to look at her, she immediately joins his order and is shipped off to a convent where she can t possibly tempt him or provide any drama.The book s message is a mess He affirms the goodness of creation, but keeps it at arm s length He puts handfuls of ashes in his food so he won t enjoy it too much He praises God s goodness in giving us wine, but why I m sure he d just pee in it so he wouldn t like it too much Francis tells his friars to work for their living, but never works at all himself.As a whole, this novel has a lot of issues The pacing is off, the characters are all static, Francis is unrelatable and not very likeable, and the problem he wrestles with seems artificial, and the book s framework doesn t build to a natural conclusion There are good episodes, anecdotes, parables, sayings, and such throughout But they don t form a coherent whole.If you re looking for a novel about the inner struggles of a well known Christian figure, I d suggest The Last Temptation of Christ by the same author There is external opposition to the main character, who undergoes legitimate change, and has a strong conclusion that it builds to None of that happens here 2 5 and not recommended

    as with all kazantzakis, this book positively sings with its zest for life and perhaps no subject isfitting for that trademark than saint francis there are times when the repetition seems perhaps tedious, and others when the story seems to lose a bit of momentum, but kazantzakis always seems to bring you back in with a touching detail or a stunning statement by francis i can t imagine what it would be like to read this book as a religious person, but as an agnostic with strong atheist as with all kazantzakis, this book positively sings with its zest for life and perhaps no subject isfitting for that trademark than saint francis there are times when the repetition seems perhaps tedious, and others when the story seems to lose a bit of momentum, but kazantzakis always seems to bring you back in with a touching detail or a stunning statement by francis i can t imagine what it would be like to read this book as a religious person, but as an agnostic with strong atheist tendencies i was still able to wring out a great deal of meaning and feeling
