From the Blurb:
Saint Francis is one of the most iconic religious figures in history, but there's much more to the converted Medieval troubadour than his role as the patron saint of animals.
Separating myths from facts, Jon M. Sweeney, bestselling author of The Pope Who Quit, presents a surprising portrait of Saint Francis as an unpredictable, puzzling visionary who created a revolution in the Catholic Church and whose inspiring spirituality shines through Pope Francis today. Sweeney also looks at Francis's unconventional approach to friendship, people at the margins, poverty, spirituality, care for God's creations, and death.
