Product Description

Biographies will only take you so far. It's impossible to truily understand Francis of Assissi without reading his writings. Sweeney has compiled all of the ones that we are most certain come from Francis himself, including his first Rule of Life, the Rule he wrote for the Third Order, letters to friends, letters to people in power, message to all Franciscans, songs, praises, canticles, and his final spiritual testament.

An introduction and explanatory notes throughout the book help to put the writings into historical and theological context.
