WHEN SAINT FRANCIS
SAVED THE CHURCH
by Jon Sweeney
Popular historian Jon Sweeney presents an intriguing portrait of Francis of Assisi beyond the familiar stories and images. In the tradition of Thomas Cahill's
How the Irish Saved Civilization
, Sweeney reveals how the saint became a hinge in the history of the Christian faith and shows how in just fourteen years—from 1205 to 1219—the unconventional and stumbling wisdom of a converted troubadour changed the Church and quite literally saved the Christian faith.
Sweeney outlines Francis's revolutionary approach to friendship, "the other" (people at the margins), poverty, spirituality, care (for people, creatures, and the natural world), and death. Paperback, 182 pages, 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
