Item Description...
Overview
To celebrate the 800th anniversary of the foundig of the Franciscan Order, Franciscan scholar and historian Dominic Monti tells us the beautiful and inspirational story of Frances of Assisi and his followers - the Order of Friars Minor, or the Lesser Brothers-from its beginnings to current times. This history emphasizes not only the medieval developments of the world's most beloved band of men but also the internal evolution and mission efforts of the friars during the modern period, from the sixteenth century to the present. Monti gives particular emphasis to the history of the Order in the English-speaking world: first England and Ireland and then North America and the 20th century expansion of the Order to other English-speaking countries.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Both interesting and informative  Feb 19, 2009
Infighting, conflict, suppression and protection by authority, involvement in political battles: all these and more mark the development of the brotherhood that began with Francis of Assisi in the early 1200s. And why would the path of a religious order be less bumpy than that of the secular culture? On the other hand, the Franciscan roots held and grew stronger so that after eight centuries, the Lesser Brothers make up the largest group of male religious in the Catholic Church.

In his survey of the life and ministry of the Franciscan Friars Minor, Dominic Monti achieves his goal of providing a resource "both interesting and informative." The Friars, Monti writes, adhere to central components of prayer, commitment to the lesser among God's people, a brotherhood of mutual love and care, and proclaiming God's reign throughout the world. Their history defines an order called not to a single ministry or corporate apostolate, but to work "amidst the people" as teachers, preachers, confessors, and pastors. They are known for their "approachability, kindness, selflessness, and lack of pretense," writes Monti. And entering their 900th year, they "continue to bring Francis' message of peace and good to the church and the entire world."
