Publisher's Summary

If you think you know Francis of Assisi, you're in for a surprise.
Discover the astonishing life of Brother Francis, the fun-loving son of wealth and privilege who gave up everything for the sake of Christ.
As a young soldier, he encountered suffering. As a victim of war, he began a search for inner-meaning that would redirect his life. As a holy beggar, he embraced lepers, shook hands with the Pope, debated a sultan, and touched the lives of millions.
Now the power and passion of one of the world's most popular saints is captured in Brother Francis: The Barefoot Saint of Assisi, an exciting 10-part audio drama from the Augustine Institute Radio Theatre. Dozens of accomplished, award-winning actors bring characters to life, and cinematic sound and music will quicken the imagination. An unforgettable experience that will inspire your heart and stir your soul.

This audiobook is incredible! A full cast theatre that really brings you into the life of Saint Francis of Assisi. I laughed, I cried and really got totally engrossed in the storytelling. It left me wanting to learn more about Saint Francis and wishing that the audiobook did not have to end. I think Radio Theatre really is the best term to describe this masterpiece because it is unlike any other audiobook I have listened too.
