Richard Rohr on St. Francis

When the current Pope chose the name Francis, it ignited a lot of interest in St. Francis of Assisi.  Eager to Love, a new book by ecumenical teacher Richard Rohr was the top of the Spring Arbor Top 100 book list for Tuesday.  I always enjoy reading this list (if I remember) each day to see what other stores are buying.

Eager to Love - Richard RohrFrom the publisher marketing:

…Francis found an “alternative way” to follow Jesus, one that disregarded power and privilege and held fast to the narrow path of the Gospel. Rohr helps us look beyond the birdbath image of the saint to remind us of the long tradition founded on his revolutionary, radical, and life-changing embrace of the teachings of Jesus.

When yesterday’s top demand list is sorted by release date, these are the ten newest titles appearing on the top 100. This list is not a ranking, as Eager to Love is #1
