Book - 2002
Rate this:
Through inspiring words and soul-enriching art, here is the story of Francis of Assisi -- from his life of ease as the son of a rich merchant to his stripping off his cloak to give to a beggar and embracing a leper. His life of reaching out and caring for others is a model for all people today.

The reflections by Marie Dennis describe the gentle, deliberate move of Francis toward God. This is an invitation "to encounter a holy man whose life is still relevant to our own journeys, even after nearly eight hundred years." The art of John August Swanson reaches into our deepest imagination and makes Francis' journey our own.
