Product Description

John Michael Talbot's Reflections on St. Francis gives inquiring readers an accessible introduction to the Rule and Testament of St. Francis of Assisi. Here Francis is shown as both a saint and a reformer, in addition to his role as a founder. Drawing upon his own experience as the founding member of The Brothers and Sisters of Charity at Little Portion Hermitage, Talbot provides unique observations on how the life of St. Francis and the Franciscan tradition can be a source of inspiration for those in all stages of life. These meditations will allow readers to contemplate the ways in which prayer, community, and simplicity can be integrated into their own lives while drawing upon Talbot's distinct interpretation of Francis's work.

Editorial Reviews

Reflections on St. Francis is a scholarly look at the work of the Saint through the eyes of religious and community leader John Michael Talbot, as he states how St. Francis of Assisi has changed his life for the better. Intriguing, introspective, and educational reading for religious readers, Reflections on St. Francis is an example of the greatness of one man inspiring others to the same.

The Midwest Book Review

The oldest representation of St. Francis, a fresco painted during his lifetime, is to be found at the place where St. Benedict began his monastic journey. Both saints, so different in many ways, wanted to search for God and to live their lives completely according to the Gospel. In our own day, this desire prompted John Michael Talbot to found a new kind of community nourished by the springs which he happily presents here. This book will be a great enrichment for all and will encourage them in their turn to allow their lives be shaped by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
