Item description for A Soldier Surrenders: The Conversion Story of Saint Camillus De Lellis by Susan Peek...

This is the story of the dramatic conversion and inspiring life of the soldier Camillus de Lellis who lived in the late 1500's, and became the founder of the religious order known then as "Ministers of the Sick", and now called the "Hospitallers". His story is one that is filled with drama: military battles, sickness and disease, conversion to God, and great charity for countless suffering people. Camillus was a very worldly man, a huge man at 6 foot 6 inches height, a soldier who fought against the Turks, and one who had a terrible addiction to gambling that continually reduced him to poverty and shame. He also suffered tremendously throughout his life from various ongoing ailments including a crippling leg disease for 46 years, a rupture for 38 years, chronically painful feet problems, and a distaste for food that caused him an inability to retain it. None of his own great sufferings kept him from always thinking of others first, and striving to serve the many sick and dying people under his care. Pope Leo XIII canonized him in 1746 and declared Camillus the Patron of the Sick.

Reviews - What do customers think about A Soldier Surrenders: The Conversion Story of Saint Camillus De Lellis?

Why don't more people know about this saint?  Jan 19, 2008
As a longtime devotee of St. Camillus, I was thrilled to learn that someone had FINALLY produced a novel or biography devoted solely to this under-appreciated and little-known saint. "A Soldier Surrenders" is a moving story of conversion, one that is both factually accurate and easy to read. I highly recommend this story to any Christian (not just Catholics) looking for an example of heroic penitence and self-giving.
A Novel Biography  Aug 20, 2007
Not realizing when I mail ordered this book, but this bio is written in novel form. The author does explain that it was originally writen as a screen play. This really isn't my style but it does work for some people. My main criticism is that the dialog is at times "hokey" and "corny" and, therefore, I think is more suited for a teen audience.

I do have to say that knowing nothing about St. Camilus, I did enjoy learning about his life. My curiosity about him is why I finished the book.
