From the Publisher
The life of a remarkable man, put into sharper perspective by newly available materials
Padre Pio: The True Story was first published in 1982 and revised in 1991. Now, after Padre Pio’s beatification and canonization and the availability of a vast amount of information that was not available before, this newly revised and updated edition brings the life of Padre Pio into sharper focus.
It is my hope that, through an accurate and objective account of Padre Pio’s life, there will be some who see evidence that the idea of a loving God who has broken into time and space is worth intelligent consideration. For those who do not, it should nevertheless prove a fascinating story and food for reflection.
