Chasing Francis by Ian Morgan Cron was definitely not my first choice for a
read, but on the web site I review for, it was the only ‘real’ book offered.
That is to say–it is a real paper book, not an e book.
Anyway to my
delight- I love the book. I am a fan of St Francis but some of the other data
written about St Francis is rather hard to digest. By creating the story (and
the history) around a pastor who has lost his faith, the author is able to bring
St Francis to life.
Fortunately, that pastor has a convenient uncle in
Italy and that uncle is a Franciscan priest. I don’t know about you, but I do
not have such a convenience. Never mind, you will soon feel like part of the
family as you too, travel the paths of St Francis through out Italy
come away with a fresh glimpse of faith, a renewal of your own and an
appreciation of those saints who have gone before us.
