KIRKUS REVIEW

Perhaps it is the luminous personality of the saint, perhaps the poet's touch that gives this book its undeniable charm and brilliance. There is a compelling force, a convincing ring. Similar to St. Francis, Francis of Xavier renounced the wealth, position and comfort of a nobleman's life to become one of the noblest of men, whose missionary journeys to India, Japan, The Islands have even been compared with St. Paul's -- a classic to read and sell.
