Franciscan Media (2012), Edition: 40th Anniversary, 208 pages


This 40th anniversary edition of what has become a spiritual classic includes revisions made by author Murray Bodo to reflect the current scholarship advances in relation to St. Francis and his legacy as well as commentary by singer and author John Michael Talbot. Like many others, Talbot was greatly influenced by this account of St. Francis, and it initiated a movement in his life to embrace the Franciscan way. Bodo’s classic is as new today as when it was originally produced. A must-listen for every person interested in growing in their walk with God, in the spirit of St. Francis.
