  • subtitles Product description
    Following the Star of Jacob that led from the Old Testament to the New, Francis Libermann made the journey from Judaism to Catholicism, became a priest and founded a vast missionary undertaking for work among the oppressed Negroes of the French Colonies and Africa. The events of his life and of his spiritual and intellectual pilgrimage as told in story form by Helen Walker Homann give an illuminating account of religious customs and sentiment in the early nineteenth century and draw the penetrating psychological portrait of a saintly and lovable personality.
