This warm-hearted little book is a window into the soul of St. Francis, one of the most passionate and inspiring followers of Jesus. "Prayer was to Francis as play is to a child: natural, easy, creative, and joyful," author Jon Sweeney tells us. "Before it became common to speak in personal terms of a relationship with God, Francis did so and made it seem natural." With this guide, readers will:
Pray the words that Francis taught his spiritual brothers and sisters to pray.
Explore Francis's time and place and feel the joy and earnestness of the first Franciscans.
Experience how it is possible to live a contemplative and active life, at the same time.

Not the traditional prayer book.
Mary Sunshine(Salisbury, NC, February 17, 2011)
This book is not the traditional prayer book, which is what I was expecting. Instead it was a
surprise in that the prayers are active, not just
read. Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers; Cons: Not What I Expected; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Well Written
