Eager to Love : The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi, Paperback Book

Eager to Love : The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi Paperback

Description

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.Richard Rohr, himself a Franciscan friar, draws on Scripture, insights from psychology, and literary and artistic references, to weave together an understanding of the tradition as first practiced by St Francis.

Rohr shows how his own innovative theology is firmly grounded in the life and teaching of this great saint and provides a perspective on how his alternative path to the divine can deepen and enrich our spiritual lives.
