Eager to Love
Full Product Description
Franciscan priest Richard Rohr focuses his attention on all frames and doorways to the divine - the alternative way of Francis of Assisi.
Francis of Assisi is one of the most beloved of all saints. Both traditional and entirely revolutionary, he was a paradox. He was at once down to earth and reaching toward heaven, grounded in the rich history of the Church while moving toward a new understanding of the world beyond.
Richard Rohr, himself a Franciscan friar, draws on Scripture, insights from psychology, and literary and artistic references, to weave together an understanding of the tradition as first practiced by St Francis. Rohr shows how his own innovative theology is firmly grounded in the life and teaching of this great saint and provides a perspective on how his alternative path to the divine can deepen and enrich our spiritual lives.
Eager to Love by Richard Rohr was published by Hodder & Stoughton General Division in August 2015 and is our 1279th best seller. The ISBN for Eager to Love is 9781473604032.

Eager To LoveMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
Richard Rohr’s books are always worth reading and in this book, Rohr who is a Franciscan himself, looks at the ‘the alternative way’ of St Francis of Assisi...a way that was in many ways as countercultural then as it is now, a way that is about giving up the things of self so as to be able to go deeper, but this is not about a heaven only theology for the few, but rather was a very much down to earth rooted theology in things possible for anyone.
It is here that we can really see why Francis is one of the Christian church's most popular saints, that we see past the twee statues and images, and into the real game changer play of Francis and Clare - their practice and belief that Jesus is here and that it is in our actions, sacrifices and communities that we truly come to know him and serve him, and most importantly it is something possible for every one.
This really is a book well worth reading and engaging with.
