The author went to great length to research details of Maurin's life, visiting his home, baptismal place, school, dormitory, childhood church and interviewed members of his family in his homeland in in France where the family has lived for 1,500 years.

Maurin was a modern-day Saint Philip Neri, in that he preached the word of Christian love, peace and faith to any who would listen.

He buttonholed politically radical Dorothy Day in New York City, who with Maurin, founded the Catholic Worker paper as well as houses of hospitality for the homeless. Today there are 214 of these houses of hospitality in various corners of the world and a following of thousands of Catholic Workers worldwide.
