Product Description

The message of St. Francis is the message of Jesus. This book looks not only at Francis' life and times but also helps us see how we can take on his spirituality in dealing with the challenges in our lives and in the world today. The authors spread light on Francis' love of poverty, his rejection of violence, his call to reform the Church, his reaction to suffering, and his sacramental vision of life - all the while challenging us to see how fully living out the radical call of the gospel gives us joy and answers the problems besetting our world today.

Special Features:

  • Includes fascinating details about the life and times of St. Francis
  • Questions at the end of each chapter help us to reflect about our own lives in light of St. Francis' example
