The Franciscan tradition is as appealing a way of life today as it has been for centuries. William Short focuses first on the importance of the order's founders, Saint Francis and Saint Clare of Assisi, offering an historical introduction. He then reflects on key themes: the Incarnation, poverty as a way to God, suffering and healing, and creation--humanity and nature in harmony. He introduces as well key figures in the Order: Bonaventure Angela of Foligno, and John Duns Scotus, who have helped shape the Franciscan vision and brought it to life through the ages.
