Reviews - What do customers think about The Lessons of Saint Francis: How to Bring Simplicity and Spirituality into Your Daily Life?
The lessons of St. Francis Jul 23, 2007
This is a very pratical book, and it is very much aimed at how to bring simplicity and sprituality into a modern life.
Unrewarding May 5, 2007
I was expecting so much more based on the glorious reviews below but they totally missed the mark. Equivalent to a book report done by a 3rd grader with ADD, this has little to offer.
Quotes seem misplaced and most stories go nowhere. I was hoping this would be more inspiring with USEABLE knowledge and not another pulpit for Christianity.
Wayne Dyer has done a far better job using the teachings of ST Francis.
Lessons of Sarint Francis Mar 13, 2007
Well written book discussing prinicples guiding Francis of Assi's daily life. Excellent for personal spiritual growth or in an adult group discussion
John Michael Talbot's The lessons of St Francis Feb 4, 2007
This is an excellent book for those trying to live the Franciscan charism in the world. It is full of very practical common sense but linked with a deep spiritual insight. I found it very easy to read and very enlightening.
Worth reading more than once Mar 20, 2006
John Michael Talbot captures the essense of Franciscan spirituality in this delightful book. Talbot maintains a deceptively simple writing style while drawing his reader in to savor the depth and breadth of Saint Francis' life and values.
