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)

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!!
