Poverty and Joy

Full Product Description

William Short sums up the Franciscan tradition as ‘chaotic and intuitive, creative and affectionate, radical and obedient’, and shows it to be as appealing a way of life today as in the past. Focusing on the importance of the Franciscans’ founders, St Francis of Assisi and St Clare, the author offers us an historical introduction to the Order before illuminating their vision.

He reflects on the key themes of the Incarnation, poverty as a way to God, suffering and healing, and of creation – humanity and nature in harmony. This resourceful text illuminates a tradition that is refreshing, inspiring and diverse in its outlook, with much to teach us today.

Poverty and Joy by William J. Short was published by Darton Longman & Todd in May 1999 and is our 26317th best seller. The ISBN for Poverty and Joy is 9780232522693.
