The life of St Francis is copiously recorded in several near-contemporary biographies. From these is drawn an account of his astonishingly influential life as a devoted follower of Jesus. There are also several stories about him and a handful of of his writings which deserve special showcasing. This book interweaves the elements to create a book that can be enjoyed as a whole or tackled in shorter episodes. The result is inspiring and heartwarming.
