Item Description...
Overview
Francis of Assisi: Writer And Spiritual Master contains several literary genres (poetry, prayers and legislative texts), all of which were written by Saint Francis himself. So many study Francis' life, legends and devotions, yet not until fairly recently have the theologians begun to take seriously Francis' writings to the forefront and shows how this simple and uneducated man, who possessed only a basic alphabetical knowledge, left behind a body of writing, including two brief handwritten texts on parchment.

Publishers Description
This book contains several literary genres (poetry, prayers and legislative texts)--all of which were written by Saint Francis himself--and an exploration and discussion of these texts by internationally renowned Franciscan scholar Thaddee Matura. Often overlooked, Francis' writings bespeak a theology of tremendous spiritual vision. So many study Francis' life, legends and devotions, yet not until fairly recently have theologians begun to take seriously Francis' simple, yet powerful words about God, the Trinity and the Christian journey. Unlike any other book on the saint from Assisi, this book brings Saint Francis' writings to the forefront and shows how this simple and uneducated man, who possessed only a basic alphabetical knowledge, left behind a body of writing, including two brief handwritten texts on parchment.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Brilliant clarity along with engaging warmth!  Apr 24, 2007
I am so deeply grateful to Thaddee Matura for the gift of his deeply insightful and yet accessible teachings in this treasure of a book. It seems just short of a miracle that he could summarizes the profound richest of the Franciscan spirituality in so few pages! I sure wish it had been written when I was writing my Masters thesis!
 
Original Writings of a Well Known Saint  Mar 24, 2005
The author, an eminent Franciscan scholar, bases this work on the 30 written pieces produced by Francis of Assisi, laying out a spiritual path developed for his contemporaries but equally valuable for present day Christians. Matura introduces Francis as a "true spiritual master of a special genre since he is a layperson without any school learning."

We learn that the path Francis proposed is one of love and adoration of God, communion with the church, love and service to all, and radical poverty. Francis's writings feature both positive and negative views of the human condition. On one hand men and women called to divine communion are made up of beautiful bodies, intellectual capabilities, perceptiveness, power, and knowledge. On the darker side, Francis writes, "We can claim as our own only our vices and our sins."

This book, while written in a clear style, is filled with complex ideas that an individual or group could explore in great depth. Reflection questions are included.
