St. Bonaventure’s theology and philosophy no longer needs to feel esoteric or obscure. In this introductory book on Bonaventure of Bagnoregio, Bruce Epperly helps make this medieval Franciscan philosopher’s work accessible for non-theologians and laypeople. 

Weaving Bonaventure’s unique contributions to theology with personal stories and spiritual exercises, Epperly shows how Bonaventure’s theology can become “incarnational” in our own lives. As Epperly writes, “This is where the spiritual journey begins: flesh and blood, peace and anxiety, dazzled by beauty and concerned about the latest news headline. God is in this place—your home and mine—and the journey into God is the quest to know it!”

Rev. Dr. Bruce G. Epperly served as a congregational pastor, university chaplain, professor, and seminary administrator for over forty years. He is the author of more than seventy books including Walking with Francis of Assisi: From Privilege to Activism. He lives in Potomac, Maryland, with his wife Rev. Dr. Katherine Gould Epperly, where he continues to teach, write, and pastor in his retirement, and daily cares for his grandchildren.
