about

This modern pilgrimage into the heart of St. Francis of Assisi takes us to tent cities and soup kitchens, to chapels and hermitages. We see it all through Francis' eyes, which saw Christ in everyone and everything. Straub reveals Francis as a man who found joy in loneliness and longing, and in poverty and prayer - because this was where Francis found God.


"His life was his sermon," says Straub, who helps tune our modern ears to Francis' message: "Full trust in the grace of God, the overflowing goodness of God." An adventure of a book for anyone who wants to encounter this beloved saint of Assisi.
