Following up on Francis: The Journey and the Dream, Murray Bodo offers a maturing of his own friar's spirituality in this dramatic storytelling of Francis' close connection and relationship with Jesus. Here we see a multi-dimensional, yet internal Francis as the ultimate disciple of Jesus: Francis as sufferer, in the wilderness, as itinerant, as misunderstood, in prayer, as teacher, as lover and protector of the poor, in authority while subject to God's authority, in community, as healer, as wounded. #: B16995

It was a gift for a friend!

Happily surprising indeed!

This is the first biography of St. Francis that I've read and am grateful to have started with this book. Francis' love of Jesus, and love for all he encountered shines through; a beacon for us to follow.

Jesus and Francis

I really enjoy all the books I can read that are about St. Francis. Being a Secular Franciscan and a [Pastoral Associate at my parish I need to know all I can.
God bless.

Lyrical, beautiful, splendid

What a marvelous book! Murray Bodo never disappoints me but this book is one of the best books I have ever read. It is easy to read and presents Saint Francis in a way that makes me love him even more. After reading it I come away feeling peaceful and inspired to follow the Franciscan way even more closely.
