This audiobook is incredible! A full cast theatre that really brings you into the life of Saint Francis of Assisi. I laughed, I cried and really got totally engrossed in the storytelling. It left me wanting to learn more about Saint Francis and wishing that the audiobook did not have to end. I think Radio Theatre really is the best term to describe this masterpiece because it is unlike any other audiobook I have listened too.

This was one of the best productions I have ever come across in my life. The voice actors combined with the sound effects and excellent writing make this drama captivating. It was incredibly awe-inspiring!!! The voices were authentic and the story made me want to sell all my belongings and live with the poor like the real Francis. I hope this company makes many more productions like this. It was superior to a movie and/or a book in many ways - the imagination really got to play along with story. BRAVO.
Thank you for this exceptional performance bringing the light and peace of Christ into our world through dear Brother Francis!
Great story of a remarkable man whose love for God reveals so much to all. Awesome performances and delightful musical arrangements. A masterpiece!
I truly enjoyed it. I felt it speak to my heart and remind me of simplicity in the perfect time of my life. God is good
We fully enjoyed this drama. Everything was first rate from the storyline and the voice acting, the music and sound effects. We have began the story of Saint Patrick and hope there will be more!
My teenage daughter was reluctant to listen but was soon hooked.
This audio drama of the life of St Francis of Assisi was beautifully done! Praise be to God.
