Well written!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have read a few books about St. Francis and St. Clare and this one is by far the best. The author delves into the very real circumstances of Francis' life. It includes the history of what was taking place in the Church at that time. And how Francis' conversion and new way of life has impacted our world.

What did you like best about this story?

I love how, to this day, Francis' life and decision to live like Jesus, still impacts change in the Catholic church. Jesus spoke to Francis from the cross at San Damiano, telling him to "rebuild his church". To this day, the life of Francis still influences the "rebuild" of the Catholic church. The book ties together why Pope Francis chose the name of Francis, and how Pope Francis is working so hard on rebuilding a church that has been is so great of need of repair.

Great content, but very poor narration

This book is an excellent collection of meditations based on the rule of the Secular Franciscan Order, but the narrator performed poorly for the recording. I ended up buying the e-book version from Amazon. After reading through the e-book version, I also think that this book is not suitable for the audio book format.

Do not buy this audio book. Get a text edition.
