I have read quite a few Richard Rohr books and listened to quite a number of his MP3 series of recordings over the past 3.5 years, his latest which is In the Beginning 6 hours with Richard Rohr and Rob Bell from which a number of quotes in this book come from. I found this book to be an excellent book for anyone wanted to dig deeper in Franciscan philosophy and our founder Francis of Assisi. I have just completed my time in formation as a member of the Third Order of the Society of St. Francis and would have loved to have had this book available to me at the beginning of my formation period which was 3.5 years ago. I enjoyed the book so much and believe it to be a great reference book that I also purchased the hard cover version of the book so I can spend a lot more time marking, highlighting and digesting the wisdom in this book. I give it 5 stars and suggest every Franciscan keep a copy in their library.
