Overview
"Although this is a small book on the spirituality of a medieval woman from a glorious past, it is also a book about Christian life today. Clare's decisive emphasis on the person of Jesus Christ is an emphasis on the human person as well, what we are and what we are called to be." This book explores Clare's deep desire to live the gospel life, more precisely, her desire for all of us to reflect on Christ and his crucifixion in order to see our own strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly, our capacity to love.

Publishers Description
Although this is a small book on the spirituality of a medieval woman from a glorious past, it is also a book about Christian life today. Clare's decisive emphasis on the person of Jesus Christ is an emphasis on the human person as well, what we are and what we are called to be. --From the Introduction
"Clare of Assisi: A Heart Full of Love" explores Clare's deep desire to live the gospel life, more precisely, her desire for all of us to reflect on Christ and his crucifixion in order to see our own strengths and weaknesses, and most importantly, our capacity to love. Ilia Delio illustrates how Clare, through her life, her writings, letters, prayer and example, is truly a mystic who helped generations of Catholics clearly see how Christ took on human flesh, not just to suffer and die for us, but to help us all in turn reflect back the face of Christ to the world.
Clare was not simply a follower of Francis, she was a formidable, resolute, devout and loving saint whose life centered on this essence of human identity--Christ is in each of us--and who sought to teach us to just be ourselves and to let God dwell within us. In "Clare of Assisi: A Heart Full of Love," Ilia Delio shows us just how Clare's simple, but powerful beliefs transformed the way we all think about Christ--even today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Disappointed  Nov 12, 2007
I was disappointed. I was looking more for a bio of St. Clare to learn more about the background, history and activities of her life. . . instead it is a domatic religious book, filled with assumptions of Clare's thoughts and feelings. Probably a very inspriational book for those who are devoted to a life of devotion to Christ, but not very helpful in terms of learning about Clare's life as a person.
 
Transforming the World  May 13, 2007
Ilia Delio opens with brief background information including Clare's connection with Francis of Assisi, and her "evangelical spirituality" focused on imitating Christ and making Him available to others. She also introduces us to four short letters Clare wrote to Agnes of Prague, which Delio believes contain the essence of Clare's ideas on spiritual life. The "pillars of Clare's thought," expressed in her second letter to Agnes, embrace four basic themes: gaze, consider, contemplate, and imitate. These four topics, along with close examination of the letters, provide the framework for the book. Although Delio refers to this as a "small book," and one reviewer quoted on the jacket calls it "a simple portrait," it is a text for careful examination rather than a quick read. Reflection questions in each chapter, extensive notes, and an index are added to help the reader along.

In discussing complex material, as Clare's ideas on the "poverty" of God and the "mirror of the cross," Delio draws on writings from Saints Francis and Bonaventure and others whose spiritual path was similar to Clare's. She also looks at Clare's practices and beliefs in light of today's world: "(Clare's) spirituality helps us understand that God will not transform the world for us but then again God will not transform the world without us."
