In 1972, a young Franciscan friar named Murray Bodo wrote a unique book about the life of St. Francis of Assisi. Francis: The Journey and the Dream offered readers a unique combination of lyrical prose and brief, absorbing vignettes that inspired hundreds of thousands of people all over the world to contemplate the life of the famous saint and see him in a new way.

Fifty years and over 200,000 copies later, this book still captivates people everywhere, and Fr. Bodo is still writing about St. Francis and the Franciscan way of life. His poetic style continues to draw readers in, and he himself continues to gaze in wonder at the saint who worked nearly his entire life to rebuild the church.

This special anniversary edition includes a new preface in which Fr. Bodo reflects on a half century spent immersed in the Franciscan way.
MURRAY BODO, ofm, a Franciscan priest, has spent his Franciscan priestly life teaching writing and English and American Literature, writing prose and poetry, offering spiritual direction, leading Franciscan pilgrimages, and giving retreats. He resides in Over-the-Rhine, a Cincinnati inner-city neighborhood.
