Richard Rohr O.F.M. ´ 3 review summary Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved of all saints Both traditional and entirely revolutionary he was a paradox He was at once down to earth and reaching toward heaven grounded in the rich history of the Church while moving toward a new understanding of the world beyond Globally recognized as an ecumenical teacher Richard Rohr started outand remainsa Franciscan friar The loving inclusive life and preaching of Francis of Assisi make him a recogniza. This was a very enlightening book I found myself unable to put it down Richard done a great in answering some of the basic uestions about many areas of religion and spirituality that I had For those who are seeking a deeper understanding of spirituality this book is for you Sure it is great to go to church and get the messages taught by those who foster community in living a spiritual life however there is not a lot of teaching on that very intimate walk with the Holy Spirit Richard lays out a method to achieve that deeper self knowing that the spirit is alive and well I felt like getting to know Christ and the Holy Spirit in a closer deeper personal way Richard Rohr does a great job of motivating one to take that deeper walk He also uses scripture to help one understand that this closer walk is very scriptural I really enjoyed his expose on Franciscan Spirituality For those who are seeking this would be a great book HS

review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Richard Rohr O.F.M. Richard Rohr O.F.M. ´ 3 review summary Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi Ble and beloved saint across many faith traditions He was as Rohr notes a master of making room for it and letting go of that which was tired or empty Francis found an alternative way to follow Jesus one that disregarded power and privilege and held fast to the narrow path of the Gospel Rohr helps us look beyond the birdbath image of the saint to remind us of the long tradition founded on his revolutionary radical and life changing embrace of the teaching. This is a book for those Christians tired of the pablum in many so called religious books He tells the essence of Francis of Assisi s counter culture life and how that was a rediscovery of the essence of the Jesus Christ event in history and its legacy that has to keep being rediscovered This is not philosophy dogma or apologetics for some fixed and unchanging religious practice It is a how to at base of contemplative prayer and the inner transformation that may come about if it is embraced In fact those who have been turned off by the immature forms of Christianity just may find within themselves the wisdom that could not embrace those distortions and want to consider what truth and appeal a mature presentation of faith and practice might have for them
