Overview

St. Francis: A Short Biography presents a portrait of the world's most-loved saint as a person who read the Gospels and incorporated them into his life and times, who held convictions that caused him distress, who changed the world through his focus on the challenges of living the Gospel. His work still resonates today, hundreds of years later, with both Christians and non-Christians alike. It presents Francis as a man who lived among men and through it became a saint, rather than a saintly man distanced from others. This 64-page popular introduction moves away from the view of the saint associated with bird baths to focus on the spirit of Franciscanism, the life of St. Francis, and his role for us today.

    Gem of a book

    Author Kathleen M. Carroll opens “St. Francis (a short biography)” suggesting that Francis of Assisi is probably the one saint most everyone has heard about. This gem of a book, with its pocket-sized dimensions and fewer than 60 pages, is a work that those who know lots or little of Francis will find charming and useful. For those who know little, Carroll provides an introduction to years of privilege and worldliness; conversion; and devotion to Christ, creation, and social justice of this twelfth-century saint. Readers with a deeper knowledge may find in this “short biography” a reminder of the lessons Francis taught that are as relevant today as they were in the Middle Ages
