Synopsis

Saint Francis of Assisi by Joyce Denham

The life of St Francis is copiously recorded in several near-contemporary biographies. From these is drawn an account of his astonishingly influential life as a devoted follower of Jesus. There are also several stories about him and a handful of of his writings which deserve special showcasing. This book interweaves the elements to create a book that can be enjoyed as a whole or tackled in shorter episodes. The result is inspiring and heartwarming.

Reviews

'Here is a special book, beautifully produced with softly coloured, charming illustrations.'

'Delightfully told and beautifully illustrated.'
