From the Publisher
Kindle your prayer life with the words, guidance, and spirit of Francis of Assisi. This warm-hearted little book is a window into the soul of St. Francis, oone 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."

I found everything I might have wanted, and more. The Chapters on St. Francis and his prayer life are inspiring, well worth dipping into again and again, and the Daily Prayers turn out to contain a wealth of memorable material, prayers and thoughts which lodge in the mind and feed ones spirit in all kinds of situations. I have been around a long time, delving into 'books like this one', but I am finding this always fresh, always illuminating, comfortable in some ways, and dis-comforting in others. One is not always inclined to see ones faults and complacencies even in the light of a Great Saint who saw his own frailties very clearly indeed.
I shall be buying The St. Francis Prayer Book: A Guide to Deepen Your Spiritual Lifein hard copy for my friend, the Kindle Version comes with me where-ever I go. I have a feeling that this Second Glance will last me a lifetime. I shall probably annoy my younger relatives and friends by buying them copies on every possible occasion.
A most worthwhile purchase.
