St Francis is one of the most lovable saints revered by, among others, Martin Luther King and Mohandas Gandhi. Accounts of his life are however shrouded in myth and legend. This book seeks to present the life and teaching of St Francis of Assisi in the form of an imaginary autobiography. At the same time, Carretto takes the liberty of having "Francis" address the problems of today, a world deeply committed to atheism, but on the brink of radical faith. The suggestion is that all people has some "Francis" in themselves if only they could get back in touch with it. The book concludes with a collection of real prayers by Francis. This book is a companion volume to "The Desert Journal" and "Letters to Dolcidia".
