If you think you know Francis of Assisi, you're in for a surprise.
Discover the astonishing life of Brother Francis, the fun-loving son of wealth and privilege who gave up everything for the sake of Christ.

Now the power and passion of one of the world's most popular saints is captured in Brother Francis: The Barefoot Saint of Assisi, an exciting 10-part audio drama from the Augustine Institute Radio Theatre. Dozens of accomplished, award-winning actors bring characters to life, and cinematic sound and music will quicken the imagination.
