Biographies of St. Francis will only take you so far. Its impossible to truly understand him 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, messages 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.
Jon M. Sweeney is the author of many books including The St. Francis Prayer Book and The Pope Who Quit: A True Medieval Tale of Mystery, Death, and Salvation, which was recently optioned by HBO, Inc.
