I found the book fascinating and informative. I have a greater understanding of St. Clare and her role in Franciscan formation.
The Light of Assisi: The Story of St. Clare is an interesting and insightful account of St. Clare's life and ministry. It is written from a woman's point of view and insights by Margaret Carney, a Franciscan Sister and scholar. She helps us understand the culture that Clare grew up in, and how it colored her life as a follower of St. Francis and an independent woman. Her struggles to remain faithful to her beliefs and goals in the face of a controlling Pope helps us appreciate her life's challenges. It is written in down to earth language that should be easily understood by any well educated person. One does not have to be a Franciscan scholar to appreciate Margaret's insights.
I enjoyed every morsel of Margaret Carney's book. She is one of the best Franciscan theologians, in my opinion.
The book summarizes the vocation and life of the saint in the shadow of Francis. Her own accomplishments should energize women today, which could bring her out in the spotlight to be a model in her own right.
