    This is a compilation of writings attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, so there are many, many footnotes of references and explanations. This collection consists of specific instructions to the Brothers -- that is, the order that was set up by St. Francis -- concerning what clothes they may own; "performing the divine office" [how many Paternosters they must say for each part of the day, and so forth]; the rules about fasting; how they must conduct themselves before the world; penances; and the This is a compilation of writings attributed to St. Francis of Assisi, so there are many, many footnotes of references and explanations.

It was humbling to read these words written by a man who was born 1181/1182. He is a disciple who lived a thousand years after Jesus, but almost a thousand years before us. I was surprised to read "But let all the brothers likewise take heed not to search the world for any filthy lucre." I had thought Shakespeare had originated that term for money. I also found word-for-word the Gloria Patri, so St. Francis originated that praise song. There is a beautiful extension of the Lord's Prayer and also a very reverent section of Praises to God.

    It a pretty quick read if you scan over the arguments for authenticity I believe the curator on the authenticity of the writings, but I have no qualifications so the point is moot. I also have no grounds of reason to challenge the arguments given. I just want to read the words of St Francis, so that what I did :)

    This book has such outstanding reviews from some folks, so, I have to think that I missed something here. I guess I expected more, or something different anyway. If you've read the Christian bible, or at least a good portion of it, you have already read everything that's here.

    I've heard a lot about St Francis of Assisi, but, aside from Canticle of the Sun, never read any of his writings, so this was a great introduction to the actual thought processes behind all the stories and myths. He certainly is the genuine article, a true yogi and mensch. The rules he lays down for his order are radical and harsh, and involve some things that would be inappropriate for layfolk, but the general principles of his faith--compassion, generosity, service, joyful mystical union--can I've heard a lot about St Francis of Assisi, but, aside from Canticle of the Sun, never read any of his writings, so this was a great introduction to the actual thought processes behind all the stories and myths.
