Full Product Description
‘Chasing Francis’ is an important spiritual lesson and a heart-warming, coming-to-faith story wrapped in one enlightening novel by Ian Morgan Cron.
Leading a mega church can be a faith-draining experience. Chase Falson decides to throw in the towel, convinced his church was built on spiritual emptiness wrapped in entertainment. His elders tell him to take a break, so Chase decides to visit his Franciscan priest uncle in the Italian countryside. His heart slowly warms to the simplicity, the authenticity and the spirituality of this old way of life.
Chase unwittingly embarks on a spiritual journey, following in the footsteps of Saint Francis of Assisi and rediscovers the art of following Jesus which heals his broken faith. His spiritual disconnect is reconnected by the ancient saint who 800 years ago breathed new life into disillusioned Christians and the collapsing Church.

When his elders tell him to take some time away from his church, broken pastor Chase Falson crosses the Atlantic to Italy to visit his uncle, a Franciscan priest. There he is introduced to the revolutionary teachings of Saint Francis of Assisi and finds an old, but new way of following Jesus that heals and inspires.
Chase Falson's spiritual discontent mirrors the feelings of a growing number of Christians who walk out of church asking, Is this all there is? They are weary of celebrity pastors, empty calorie teaching, and worship services where the emphasis is more on Lights, Camera, Action than on Father, Son, and Holy Spirit while the deepest questions of life remain unaddressed in a meaningful way.
Bestselling author Ian Morgan Cron masterfully weaves lessons from the life of Saint Francis into the story of Chase Falson to explore the life of a saint who 800 years ago breathed new life into disillusioned Christians and a Church on the brink of collapse. Chasing Francis is a hopeful and moving story with profound implications for those who yearn for a more vital relationship with God and the world.
Follow Chase's spiritual journey all the way to Italy to rediscover his faith in the footsteps of Francis of Assisi and then begin one of your own through the pilgrim's guide included in this powerful novel.
