Item Description...
Overview
Taken from the acclaimed and best-selling Francis of Assisi: Early Documents set, this collection contains Saint Bonaventure's Major and Minor Legends of Saint Francis as well as his Sermons about Saint Francis. Bonaventure, the Seraphic Doctor, writing about Francis, the Seraphic Saint: such is the nature of this volume. The enigmatic Pseudo-Dionysius considered seraphs "fire-makers" or "carriers of warmth." Expanding upon Dionysius, Hugh of Saint-Victor interpreted "fire" as "the fire of love." Because love is superior to knowledge, the seraphim rank as the highest of the choirs of angels. "Such is the power of love," Hugh wrote, "that it transforms the lover into the beloved." Continuing the thought of his predecessors in the mystical tradition, Bonaventure was the first to call Francis "seraphic." Therein Bonaventure discovered the secret of Francis and established the guiding principle of his portraits of and reflections on his "Seraphic Father." "This translation makes the texts from this fascinating period in Franciscan history available to a wider audience, while the notes and introduction do not compromise on scholarly standards." Calvin Theological Journal

Franciscan Spirituality  Mar 18, 2007
This book enables you to have a deeper understanding of the unique quality of Franciscan Spirituality.
 
You Will Be Amazed  Feb 9, 2007
Although this work is obviously a "find" for scholars, it is also a gift for those searching for models of discipleship and inspiration in their daily lives. True, Francis was highly exceptional and yes, he lived in the Middle Ages, but his theology, preaching and, most of all, practice of Christianity remain relevant to this day.

The introductory material provides adequate background for the work Bonaventure developed as a definitive portrait of the man who became Saint Francis. For me, however, the real story starts about 40 pages in, with the "Major Legend" that covers Francis' life and the miracles reported after his death. The chapters average fewer than 10 pages, and any one could be the basis for personal or small group reflection on the message and how it applies today. In addition, you may be amazed at what you didn't know about Francis of Assisi as you come upon paragraph after paragraph recounting visions, miracles, and devotions. They begin like these: Once when he was asked how he protected himself against the bite of winter's frost with such thin clothing... Once it happened that one of the brothers responded more gruffly to a poor man begging alms... Once in Rome he had with him a little lamb out of reverence for the most gentle Lamb of God....
