Walking with Francis of Assisi: From Privilege to Activism

Chris Gansel
Loved this book

The author does a wonderful job of illustrating how far our society and religion in the US are from the example and teachings of Jesus Christ and St Francis of Assisi. We need so much more empathy and justice for all.

Elizabeth Stanton

May be one of the best, most inspiring books on St are encouraged and energized to "get involved" ~ and that's only half way through the reading!

Relevant and Insightful Perspective on the Franciscan Charism

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found the author to be aligned with the Franciscan charism, but as a protestant minister he brought a slightly different perspective. As a family man, looking at the second half of life and impacted like all of us by COVID and current events, i was easily able to relate his experiences and observations with my own. I found his insights to be respectful yet challenging. He did a great job taking some of the best of Franciscan values and applying them in the contemporary circumstances. Franciscans and all would find the book wrth reading.
