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.

Author Bio

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.

Editorial Reviews

This lovely, accessible book looks at how the frescoes invite us to see Francis's life "as a modern extension of the Biblical history of salvation." That allows us to connect our lives also to both the Old Testament and to Christ. Verdon does this not only through insights and and art, but even uses seemingly unlikely items like art placement, architectural placement, and landscape to bring us closer to God, via this meditation on St. Francis of Assisi. Stunning.—Julie Davis, the Happy Catholic
