Phillip Campbell, author of the best-selling The Story of Civilization series from TAN Books, returns to offer young Catholics a compelling historical account of the life of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina. Wounds of Love follows the journey of Saint Pio from his youth as a farm boy in Pietrelcina to his days as the beloved wonder-working friar of San Giovanni Rotondo. His fascinating and inspiring life unfolds in these pages, from the earliest moments he received the Stigmata to his bouts with the devil to his reading of souls to the touching relationships he shared with his parents and so many others.
Yet Wounds of Love goes beyond mere biography, giving ample room to explore the intense inner life of the great Capuchin saint. Written in an engaging narrative style and beautifully illustrated throughout, Wounds of Love will deepen your love of Padre Pio.
Suitable for ages ten and up.
