Francis: The Journey and the Dream

I had a previous copy for many years and enjoyed it very much. This one I'm sure will be just as good. Right now I'm reading the book Francis and Jesus by Murry Bodo, OFM and it is very good.

Harold Smolinski
Mostly speculation?

The book was almost solely based on the author's speculation of St. Francis's thoughts and feelings. I wasn't expecting that. I really enjoyed one of the author's other books, "Through the Year with St. Francis of Assisi.

This is a book that is quick and easy to read. It is a great aid to St. Francis' narrative and make you feel that he is along side you physically during his Journey so that you may more fully understand the way God moved in his life and in ours. The book is a good bridge Francis' actually writings and those of close companions about him for a better understanding of his thoughts and feelings.

Francis: The Journey and the Dream

One of many books I've read about Francis, but so very poetic with short chapters on specific aspects of his life. A wonderful read.
