About this Book:

Biographies of St. Francis will only take you so far. It's impossible to truly understand him without reading his writings. Sweeney has compiled all of the ones that we are most certain come from Francis himself, including his first Rule of life, the Rule he wrote for the Third Order, letters to friends, letters to people in power, messages to all Franciscans, songs, praises, canticles, and his final spiritual Testament. An introduction and explanatory notes throughout the book help to put the writings into historical and theological context.

About the Author:

Jon M. Sweeney is an independent scholar and writer of popular history. He lives in Evanston, Illinois and Vermont, is married, and the father of three children. He writes and reflects on religion and culture in books, articles, reviews, blogs, and on television, and he works in book publishing.

Jon was the cofounder and editor-in-chief of SkyLight Paths Publishing in Vermont for many years. Since 2004 he has been the editor-in-chief at Paraclete Press.
