From the Author's Introduction
It is humankind that now faces the dilemma concerning whether to choose life or to choose death (Deut. 30:15-18). The Franciscan way is to choose life and love. It is to let go of the egotistic pride of individualism and the fear of failure and to open the human heart to God’s longing and loving embrace. Then, as one loved beyond measure, the beloved of God turns outward to the world–to family, friends, associates, the quarrelsome ones, the despicable and the despised, and, yes, even in an age of terrorism, to the enemy–and seeks to love them into life. This is the challenge, the possibility and the great hope that the Franciscan understanding of the human person holds out to the world.
