Life of the famous poor man of Assisi and his Franciscan brothers.
This excellent introduction details the life and spirituality of Francis, and the context in which his order of little brothers (Friars Minor) were born and how they had such great and immediate impact upon the Church and the world.
From wild, youthful knight and prisoner of war to humble beggar, faithful disciple and inspirational preacher, Francis also advised cardinals and popes, and suffered great persecution in the name of Christ.
