Publisher's Summary

Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved of all saints. Both traditional and entirely revolutionary, he was a paradox. He was at once down-to-earth and reaching toward heaven, grounded in the rich history of the Church while moving toward a new understanding of the world beyond. Francis found an "alternative way" to follow Jesus, one that disregarded power and privilege and held fast to the narrow path of the Gospel. Franciscan Father Richard Rohr helps us look beyond the birdbath image of the saint to remind us of the long tradition founded on Francis' revolutionary, radical, and life-changing embrace of the teachings of Jesus.

"A gift to all Franciscan-hearted people everywhere!" (Daniel P. Horan, O.F.M., author of The Last Words of Jesus: A Meditation on Love and Suffering)

Very impressive!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I found this audiobook to be very insightful and enlightening. Fr Richard is a master at explaining the very complex very simply and in a style that is passionate and invigorating. I kept wanting to turn it off to go to sleep but the content and Fr Quigley's voice were mesmerizing. This is not a beginners book but for those who already have an understanding of Franciscan spirituality and for those it will certainly delight! Highly recommended!!

Eager to love

Listeners to this book should be aware that if you take notice, meditate and practise what the author tells us of St. Francis, it could seriously change your life.
It is sometimes necessary to re-wind and re-listen to parts of this book to fully understand some of the ideas put forward. I found that I had to do this but it was well worth the time spent in doing so. You on the other hand may be a lot brighter than me.
Please listen to this book if you are genuinely interested in Spirituality. It can do nothing except benefit you and hopefully bring you peace and some joy.
