James in the Suburbs

St. Francis & the Christian Life – Galatians

“St Francis and the Christian Life” uses the fascinating, mystical life of St. Francis to illustrate the lessons found in the Epistle to the Galatians.

It looks at the question: “How do we live the Christian Life?” This was the question that the author and her husband walked with as they retraced the footsteps of St. Francis across the Italian wilderness. Did they need to renounce materialism and live more simply? Did they need to do more work serving those in need? Was more Bible study or a stronger prayer life needed? What made their commitment to Christ different than those committed to other faiths? How could their lives make a difference?

The author was planning a lecture series on Galatians, written by the Apostle Paul, when she and her husband began their pilgrimage. As they journeyed into the life and legends of St. Francis, a playful old school Franciscan monk befriended them. Together the three named the parallels and divergences in the lives of St. Francis and the Apostle Paul. In doing so, they discovered an entirely new—but ancient—way of following Jesus.

The book contains a discussion plan for those wanting to study it as a group.

Available at Wipf and Stock and Amazon. Digital versions available too.
