Francis of Assisi by Leonardo Boff

Regular price $19.00

In this classic work, Brazilian theologian Leonardo Boff examines the relevance of St. Francis to contemporary spirituality and to the construction of a new church. Boff's Francis embodies "the preferential option for the poor." As a "model of gentleness and care," Francis exemplifies an "integral liberation" in which the spiritual and the social are never separate, but intimately bound together.

"Through his deep humanity Francis of Assisi has become an archetype of the human ideal. He belongs not only to Christianity but to all humankind." - Boff
