The Lessons of St. Francis
How to Bring Simplicity and Spirituality into Your Daily Life
by John Michael Talbot with Steve Rabey
The life and philosophy of history’s most beloved saint gives us an approach to living that provides a perfect antidote to today’s harried, consumerist lifestyles.
Written with a Catholic musician and author who leads a Franciscan community in Arkansas, The Lessons of St. Francis provides a timely take on this timeless saint in chapters about simplicity, creativity, community, compassion, service, solitude, joy, humility, chastity, prayer and peace.
