   Most comprehensive writing of Padre Pio's life.
This book changed my spiritual walk and deepened it in ways I can 't explain. Padre Pio feels close to me. Of all the books or accounts I have read by Padre Pio, this is the most comprehensive and well written story of his life. He is a saint for our time and I believe he spends his eternity as a continuation of spiritual direction and assistance to those who become his spiritual children or ask for his intercession. As you read this book, you will see that this is a saint who walked from childhood to his death in the miraculous power of God.
   Padre Pio
Great trans - action. Not many that day and age bearing the stigmata. As his death, he has worked so many miracles.
   Five Stars
This is the most inspirational book I have ever read! I will order more books on Padre Pio...
   Decent Book
This book is very comprehensive in covering the life of this great saint. At times, however, it is very dry. If this were used in an academic setting, it would be very appropriate and beneficial.
   Excellent book by Bernard Ruffin
The true story of Padre Pio is a wonderful book. I bought the book for a relative. She enjoys it very much!
I read Ruffin's first issue on the life of Saint Pio, which was exceptional. The first edition is also exceptional, but more organized in sections with a lot of new information that Ruffin gathered since the third edition. I am not a Catholic. I love Saint Pio, but I hate it. Saint Pio presents Ruffin as a human being with strengths and weaknesses. I really relate to the humanness of Saint Pio. The fact that Saint Pio has imperfections as a very holy man. This has enabled me to be more accepting of my humanness and limitations. I have also had chronic pain from a bad back for the last 45 years. I can relate to Saint Pio also suffering from chronic pain from the STIGMATA wounds for 50 years. Saint Pio '' is my friend. I have his picture in my living room, which inspires me to stay motivated on my spiritual journey through life.
   Spectacular Padre Pio
The author brought together all perspectives, including those who did not love Padre Pio. I enjoyed reading this book thoroughly and I hope to be able to visit Italy soon after this current chastisement and see his beloved town and his small church.
   Absolutely the Best Book about Padre Pio.
I have read 18 books about Padre Pio and this one is the best. I am very grateful to C. Bernard Ruffin for writing this beautiful book about a beautiful man...
   Have your faith reinforced regardless of your religion.
Regardless of religious belief, we all need hope and it never hurts when there are documented cases of miraculous and completely unexplainable things. Without this hope, there would be no good reason for us to ignore Scurry about the planet.
   Great book
I loved this book because it did not focus on the mystic part of his life that most books focused on. It provides a glimpse into his personal and family life, and those relationships. It has humanized him for lack of a better word and allows someone like myself to relate to such a great and holy person. It gives hope to all who aspire to be saints and live a holy and devout life, though we are all flawed. God bless the Lord.
