The Sultan and the Saint tells one of the great, lost stories from history. Set in a past period of East-West conflict, it speaks with urgency to our present. Two men of faith, one an itinerant Christian preacher (St. Francis of Assisi), the other the ruler of a Muslim Empire (Sultan Malik al-Kamil), bucked a century of war, distrust, and insidious propaganda in a search for mutual respect and common ground.
