Ble and beloved saint across many faith traditions He was as Rohr notes a master of making room for it and letting go of that which was tired or empty Francis found an alternative way to follow Jesus one that disregarded power and privilege and held fast to the narrow path of the Gospel Rohr helps us look beyond the birdbath image of the saint to remind us of the long tradition founded on his revolutionary radical and life changing embrace of the teaching. Richard Rohr is one of my favorite writers I can meditate on what he has to say and feel that gradually it begins to make and sense to me I need to lay aside my ego however which is an off and on again thing As an older person it is time for me to grow or get old by turning lose of what I valued most of my earlier life It is not an easy read but one that goes to the heart of being human

Richard Rohr is one of my favourite authors I love his slant way of seeing his perceptions of faith and its working out in our daily lives Here he takes an in depth view of a well known beloved Christian saint and brings him to life in a refreshing way Francis of Assisi is not only associated with a truly practical theology and a mystical way of relating to God s creation he is also Founder friar of the Franciscan movement to which Richard Rohr himself belongsTherefore it is with an insider eye an appreciation for history and a determination to root St Francis in reality that this book is written This is a fresh imaginative approach that shows us the man behind the cassock the heart behind the legend and the truth sitting side by side with mythIt s a book that demands focussed attention and savouring in small chunks at a time because of its depth Rohr may malign his own mind at times but this is a meaty read not for the faint heartedAlthough Francis of Assisi is the major character here you will also find other significant souls who fed into his spirituality and influenced his orthodoxy All serve to introduce the reader to a way of being seeing and sensing that opens them up to new ways of thinkingThis is rich stuff redolent with resources uilted with uotes and notes In the unlocking of a life you may find yourself looking at St Francis with new eyes and also seeing how you could live differently in response to all that s revealed A profound learned read that may just unsettle you into a fresh spiritual perspective
