"Francis: The Journey and the Dream depicted a Francis who 'sang' to me. I felt that I had found a teacher to lead me home. I had no idea where this was going to lead, but I was ready to follow."—John Michael Talbot

One of the most influential saints' books, with over 200,000 copies sold, Francis: The Journey and the Dream continues to inspire people of all ages with its lyrical prose and depth of love for the Poor Man of Assisi. This beautiful anniversary edition includes Fr. Bodo's story of writing the book and its worldwide influence, a reader's guide for book clubs and discussion groups, and a list of Fr. Bodo's favorite Franciscan resources, culled over three decades of research on Francis and his followers.

Each of us is somewhat familiar with Saint Francis, his work, his love for his fellowmen and of course his friends, the animals.
When I chose this book I expected it to be something of a work of historical facts blended with myths.
The author indeed gives us many historical facts about the Saint yet he also takes us on a journey or shall I say, Saint Francis's journey, which included not only his struggles but also many heartbreaks.

You find yourself drawn to Saint Francis in Fr. Bodo's lines: 'To Francis everything in him and around him was a gift from his Father in Heaven. He expected nothing, so he was grateful for everything. Even a piece of earth was cause for rejoicing, and he thanked God always for everything that was. He held everything to his heart with the enthusiasm of a child surprised by some unexpected joy...Nothing was evil, for everything came from God, and evil came only from a heart that chose not to love.'

From his early days of soldiering to the time Jesus spoke to him through the crucifix, we experience this amazing dream that became Saint Francis's life and the eventual formation of his order of Lesser Brothers.
Here is the story of a little man named Francis who lived and died quietly at age fourty five in Assisi. 'He left behind a Dream to dream and a journey to challenge everyone!'

Beautifully written, this book will inspires you to follow on the footsteps of the Saint and to love and embrace your fellowmen!

This 40th anniversary edition written by Father Murray Bodo is very informative but surprisingly also gripping. I found myself many times walking alongside the Saint as Fr. Bodo describes his life as a spoiled rich child and his trials and often agonies in his love for others.

I found myself rereading chapter after chapter and find this one a 'keeper'! I give it 5 stars!

This book on Francis, although good, was quite predictable. His life was presented in very flowery language that is typical of books written about him. I would consider it a great introduction to the Saint, but for anyone searching to learn something new about Francis, you might want to search elsewhere. ( )
