Twenty-fifth Anniversary Edition with a new preface by the author 'One of the most comprehensive and readable biographies of St. Francis. . . Boff's work shows how Francis' vision addresses the nearly identical issues of today with uncanny foresight.' - Sojourners 'Sets before us issues of clear choice for Christian commitment today' - St. Anthony Messenger This classic book offers a new look at St. Francis and his significance for contemporary spirituality and church. Describing Francis as model of gentleness and care, Boff shows how il poverello embodies what we know as the preferential option for the poor. In other chapters he deals with Francis's ecological consciousness, his nonviolence, his dialogue with other faiths, and his vision of a church centered on the poor. Throughout, St. Francis exemplifies an integral liberation a perspective in which the spiritual and the social are never separate, but intimately bound together.
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. Eschewing sentimental images of the Poverello, 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. In his new preface Boff observes: "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."
