From Italy With Love
5 stars By LaurieR, Oct 29 2016
Wonderfully inspiring and challenging. A wonderful man of God with his life's purposes and principles beautifully communicated through the context of today. Vulnerable, gripping and full of refreshing, authentic, practical spirituality. The study following the novel enables further deeper reflection and action. Excellent for personal and group use. Francis of Assisi still lights up the world with the love of Christ.
