    Excellent Introduction to Saint Pio

    This book was an excellent introduction to the life of Saint Padre Pio. It was full of fancinating stories about this very holy and remarkable man. It also contains accounts of some of the miracles attributed to his intervention after his death. Since is was written in 2000 though, it does not have information about more recent events leading up to his cannonization. And there are many stories about his life that I have read in other accounts that did not make this book. But all in all it was very easy to read and left me wanting to know more. It is a great book to read for yourself and then share with a friend or loved one.

    A Beautiful Book, Beautifully Written

    Amongst the many books available today on the recently beatified Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, none of them is more sympathetic and full of stories of his miracles, his life, and his legacy than this book by an Italian journalist. Through Renzo Allegri's sympathetic eyes,we begin and see Padre Pio not only as a man of prayer, but as a human being who suffered much for his fellow man. Interestingly enough unlike other biographies on Padre Pio, this book is written more as an introduction to Padre Pio and his world than anything else. It is a book worthy of it's subject and should be a must read for anybody interested in this wonderful saint of modern times.
