Many books have been written about St. Francis of Assisi where his life is often seen with spectacle and miracles. Bret Thomas, OFS, in his book St. Francis of Assisi Passion, Poverty and the Man Who Transformed the Catholic Church offers a more intimate picture of a soul yearning for God in his everyday life and glimpsing His presence in all creation. "What thrust this little man from a little town to the heights of sanctity?" To answer this question, the author "pierces the inner life of Francis, revealing his deepest passions, his unquenchable love for poverty and his unshakeable grip on the core of the Gospel".

The book has been called "A vivid picture of the milieu in which he lived" and "a literary pilgrimage" by others who have read it and it comes highly recommended. If you are interested in a deeper look at the life of St. Francis of Assisi, you will want to read this book about a man who was commonly considered Alter Christus or "other Christ" and was considered to be a saint for everyone.
