Book on Padre Pio?


What is a good book about the life and times of Padre Pio? I am interested in learning more about him as I find him very interesting. thanks


Try this one:


I have a book written by Bernard Ruffin. It is a good read…It is VERY unbiased…I believe the Author was a Lutheran at the time of the writing…he is now a catholic. The book itself has NO Luteran bias in it…In fact I was shocked to hear that it was written by a Lutheran. It is a good biographical sketch includes all of the spiritual warfare etc. that St. Pio experienced.
