Life changing

I listen to a lot of different series from Learn25. This one has been the best. I learned so much about St. Francis. I can’t recommend this enough.

Thorough, academically sound, refreshing

Thoroughly researched story not just about the life of Francis, but also the historical and cultural and economic contexts of the time. Proceeds then to an intriguing analysis of the disputes and controversies and splits in the Franciscan order over the next few centuries. Even covers missionary activity in China and the Americas, though in less detail. Narration was a bit slow and monotone, but didn't seriously detract. I highly recommend this listen to anyone interested in St. Francis and Franciscan history.

A sympathetic, balanced appreciation

I've listened to or read a couple of other biographies of St. Francis - one of which was frankly hagiographic, the other of which was 'debunking". Both had too much of a slant and too little if a feel for St. Francis and his society. This one was more open-ended and exploratory than the others: Short doesn't seem to have an axe to grind, and the result is a thoroughly satisfying, eye-opening account of a spiritual visionary who struggled to articulate and safeguard his unique charism. The final chapters on the Franciscan movement's later evolution filled in much needed gaps and completed the picture beautifully, making sense of many features of Franciscan and Catholic history that at first glance seem incongruous in connection with the founder.
