Francis of Assisi and the Future of Faith: Exploring Franciscan Spirituality and Theology in the Modern World is now available in paperback, for the Amazon Kindle, B&N Nook, and the iPad!
“Nearly eight-hundred-years after his death, St. Francis of Assisi remains the most popular saint in all of Christianity. He continues to inspire women and men of all ages, all backgrounds, and from all religious traditions; but how much do people know about the actual spirituality and theology of this great saint? What does this medieval man from Italy, and the religious movement he founded, have to say to a complex, globalized, technologically advanced, and modern world?
Daniel P. Horan, OFM, in his latest book, Francis of Assisi and the Future of Faith, answers these questions and more. Returning to the sources and the best of contemporary scholarship, Horan presents a multifaceted approach to questions about the rich meaning and deep significance of the Franciscan spiritual and theological tradition for our present day in three parts.
