Celebrating how God's goodness and beauty can be appreciated in animals, Francis of Assisi's Canticle is a Christian classic that has been adapted many times. In this handsome edition, Italian poet Luigi Santucci reframes the sermons that Francis bestowed on the birds, an Ox, a worm, and the wolf of Gubbio, and allows his wisdom to come back to us through the voices of those creatures, providing us with a new angle on Franciscan spirituality. Each animal is depicted in one of Martin Erspamer's cheerful, folksy paintings, and the book includes prefatory remarks from the writings of Augustine, Bonaventure, and Pope Francis.
