The life of Saint Francis of Assisi was a paradigm of simplicity, humanity, and love. In today's busy world, his practices have enormous appeal, described in this inspiring work by John Michael Talbot, the founder of the Brothers and Sisters of Charity, a lay order based on the Franciscan principles of simplicity and self-sufficiency.In The Lessons of Saint Francis, Talbot and co-author Steve Rabey demonstrate the enduring significance of St. Francis's wisdom. Organized by topic, such as Simplicity, Humility, Compassion, Creativity, Community, Solitude, Service, and Prayer, each chapter includes excerpts from St. Francis's writings, as well as those of his followers and biographers. The authors discuss how these virtues were expressed in the holy man's life and how we can take real, meaningful steps to incorporate them in our own lives today through meditations, exercises and dozens of practical suggestions.Beautifully designed and illustrated, The Lessons of St. Francis will appeal to the millions of people who have found guidance in works on saints and angels.Combining deep spiritual insight with the offer of a saner, less complicated way of living, The Lessons of St. Francis is a treasury of fundamental wisdom.
