Publisher's summary

Francis and Jesus is the story of how the poor and humble St. Francis of Assisi gave away all to gain all, sharing in God's kingdom on Earth. Francis' life exemplifies what it means to be a genuine disciple of Jesus, walking in Christ's footsteps to show how ultimate truth is lived in small, unique ways. Franciscan Father Murray Bodo takes us on the journey with Francis, as we see his pain, his suffering, his dying to self. On that difficult road we are reminded that death to self creates new life in the freedom to love God wholeheartedly and revel in true joy.

Critic reviews

"In this lovely book, we can stand and walk in the light of perhaps two of the greatest spotlights the world has ever received, Jesus and Francis; and you will see that they create one bright beam of light, more than enough light to overcome any darkness." (Richard Rohr, author of "Breathing Under Water," from the foreword to Francis and Jesus)
