Gavan Daws is a wonderful writer and I think this will prove to be one of the best books written about this energetic and holy man, Damien. He lived a life of service,sacrifice and wanted only to follow in the footsteps of his Savior, Jesus Christ, who came to serve, not to be served. Damien was very human and annoyed many of the clergy and government officials in Hawaii. It is comprehensive, non-religious, well written, and well structured. Gavan Daws did a great job describing Father Damien, his negative as well his positive attributes.

The leper priest of Molokai has been seen variously as a saint, a dedicated professional, a dirty old man, and (as . Daws essentially concurs with Robert Louis Stevenson's defense which argued that Damien should be judged by his accomplishments rather than his psychology.

Daws' investigation leads back to the young priest's early expression of an ""aptitude for mortification"" and to older brother Pamphile whose vocation presented a competitive challenge.
