Written shortly after his death, this is the Franciscans' official biography of their great founder. His unusual vocation, life, miracles and greatness--all portrayed briefly, with love and honesty. Learn about the founder of one of the largest religious orders in the world. Inspiring!
This biography basically catalogues the different aspects of holiness displayed by St. Francis. The language is somewhat dated and does not flow well which could be due to the translation. I preferred the G. K. Chesterton version of "The Life of St. Francis of Assisi."
