The research was excellent and the presentation is readable and informative, even for one who is knowledgeable regarding Francis and Franciscan History. I would recommend this for both a beginner to inspire further research, as well as an academic. I would like the 500 page complete edition when written!
Fr. Tom Speier, OFM gives the reader an informative and concise outline of the foundation of the Order of Friars Minor (The Franciscans). This is a narrative stripped of the legends and myths often associated with the Little Poor Man of Assisi. With this chronology we catch a glimpse of the very real struggles Francis endured and suffered to “repair the Church” of God as he began to gather followers, and as the band of brothers grew and institutionalized. His deteriorating health was matched with his near loss of hope for the brotherhood. While sainthood give glory to God, this brief outline makes concrete the cost of such a life. I highly recommend this small study of the Chronology of St. Francis of Assisi.
A comprehensive history and chronology of St. Francis of Assisi’s life A must for any follower of this great saint.
This chronology of Francis and his early followers provides a valuable resource for anyone serious about the study of Francis. Speier scoured the sources and assembled a easy-to-use chronology of Francis' life. Even in spite of current controversies, it provides a wealth of information and references so that a person can decide which is the most accurate interpretation.
