Product Description

Francis of Assisi was a rebellious, reveling young man. After a profound conversion experience, he became the most popular saint in history. Jon Sweeney sheds new light on this familiar tale. Moreover, he demonstrates that Francis himself became a conversion experience for all of Christian history, reviving the Church and revolutionizing how we think about the poor and the marginalized, our relationship to the created world, and even our own mortality. The fascinating story of this unruly young man who saved the Church will inspire you to change your corner of the world.
