Description

Seeks to present the life and teaching of St Francis of Assisi in the form of an imaginary autobiography. At the same time, Carretto takes the liberty of having Francis address the problems of today, a world deeply committed to atheism, but on the brink of radical faith.

User reviews

LibraryThing member NeilDalley
This beautiful little book is more of a meditation than a biography of S. Francis. It is written in the first person and while giving a fresh perspective on some of the historical events of Francis's life it also expands his world view to interpret challenges that face the current generation.
