This is a beautiful book-a prose poem. Father Bodo was a good friend of my family, and I first read this more than forty years ago and have read it many times since. It's not really a biography, but anyone who wants to understand the magnetism of Francis, Christian or not, will love this little book. Cincinnati, Ohio is steeped in Franciscan tradition, and I'm grateful for having had many Franciscan friends and mentors during my childhood and adolescence. Thank you, Father Bodo.

FANTASTIC! This book is an easy read that provides little snippets of Saint Francis' humble views of service and faith. Truly inspired fiction! (And, thanks to my brother in-law for such a good Christmas present.)

This book was my "official" introduction to St. Francis. Of course, I knew of the saint, and his peaceful ways, and love of nature. This book, with it's very short chapters and poetic style, is almost like reading free verse. There are beautiful passages written with imagery and feeling, but I found myself wanting more information. As I visited Assisi, and Padua and San Giovanni Rotondo this past October, Francis' influence was around every corner. He was a truly remarkable man of God. This book [...]

In lovely allegory poetically composed by Rev. Murray Bodo, OFM, tells the story of St. Francis of Assisi. Francis was born into a wealthy family whose father expected him to take an active leadership role in his prosperous silk business. Instead, Francis acted upon intuition and instinct; he transformed prayer and consciousness into loving service to others. The founder of the Order of St. Francis encouraged others to turn inside where the Voice of our own dreams speak and to respond with trust [...]

This was my Easter/Lent book this year. I'm going to admit it was slow-going and a bit "deep" here and there. But I enjoyed the collection of stories that are in this volume. They are a series of recollections of Francis' life as told as Francis experiences the final few hours of his life in the chapel of Our Lady of the Angels below the town of Assisi. I particularly enjoyed "Of Larks & Sparrows", "The Wolf of Gubbio", "The Rains of Mount Subasio" and "A Prayer for Every Weather." A truly d [...]

This is a beautiful little book written by a Franciscan priest. It is not a biograph of Francis, but 77 vignettes of the life and thought of the 13th saint from Assisi.If I had it to over again, I would read this book more slowly, only one short chapter a day. This is a book that needs to be savored, not devoured. But, maybe I will read this book again at some point, slowly as I suggested would be best.[March 17, 2011] Finished reading for the second time, more slowly, and I enjoyed it probably [...]

The reading was simple and accessible to anyone. I imagine since the author was profoundly impacted as a very young man by a biography of Francis of Assisi he wrote very much in a style that would appeal from 13 years old and up. I think this book would be an important started for anyone wanting to delve deeper into this Saint's life. Some of the ideas presented here moved me deeply and certainly influenced my spiritually. The way the book is organized would also make it a good daily devotional. [...]

I am currently studying and had to investigate the spirituality of St. Francis .This book was meditative accessible and above all meaningful and relevant for today . St. francis wanted to "Live the Gospel" and his example has echoes for us today in a different culture and time. It was the first book about a Saint that I read and could understand how he expressed his faith as a servant of God .A great thought provoking book for this Advent 2012

A decent book on some of the key moments in the live of Saint Francis. It highlights several incidents in this venerated Saints lives, but doesn't give you the overlal picture of the saint. Ultimately, this book is stuck between a 3 and a 4. What's there is very inspired and worth reading, but what isn't there shouts at you after you've finished.

This book on Francis, although good, was quite predictable. His life was presented in very flowery language that is typical of books written about him. I would consider it a great introduction to the Saint, but for anyone searching to learn something new about Francis, you might want to search elsewhere.

While I am a great fan of St. Francis, I am not a big fan of this book. The sugar coated, here's what the great saint was thinking, non-credible in some respects, version of his life. No indication of the basis for much of what the author asserts. If you want to judge the worth of Francis (one of my favorite saints), I would take a pass on this one.

A good short book on the life of St. Francis. I felt it was better read for daily meditations than being read as a novel/biography. It helped me better realize why Pope Francis chose the name Francis when he became pope.

Fr. Bodo beautifully crafts St. Francis' life in a series of vignettes with each piece having narrative flow of poetry and prayer. This is the best way to learn of Francis' vision of the Journey and the Dream, as it leads us into to reflection of our own path.

Very dramatic and poetic depiction of the life of Saint Francis. Good for meditation and considering how events in the life of the Povorello played out. While it is a classic, it is not my favorite book about St. Francis of Assisi.

Easy to read, interesting perspective.

One of the best books I ever read

Murray has such a flair for telling stories, and this is such a wonderful way to be intorduced to Francis of Assisi
