Moreover, he demonstrates that Francis himself became a conversion experience for all of Christian history, reviving the Church and revolutionizing how we think about the poor and marginalized, our relationship to the created world, and even our own mortality.

As I listened to the book, the style caused me to question what was documented by research and what was based on the author’s opinion. He makes many statements that sound like assumptions and interpretations.
The style in which the story was told. Mr. Sweeney is obviously a very good historian but the style does not convey history.
Any professional narrator. Unless they are professionals, the authors should not read their books.
