Fr. Augustine Thompson, OP, who posts here now and then, fairly recently published a new biography about St. Francis of Assisi. This might be a good book for your parish priest or for seminarians or for yourself, as we watch the new pontificate through the lens of the “Poverello”.
I have it and it is very good. As a matter of fact it is also on my Kindle (and you need a Kindle!).
To buy the book in the USA, click HERE. When you use my links, I get a small percentage, which really helps.
The Kindle version USA is HERE
I have search boxes for amazon UK and Canada at the bottom of the blog. Cut and paste this into the search box: Francis of Assisi: A New Biography Augustine Thompson
Get up to speed on Francis and Francis and give Fr. Thompson’s book a boost too.
