Eager to Love Summary

Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi by Richard Rohr

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 Reviews

Rohr is a wonderfully appealing writer, making past ideas and future hopes open to all. The language uses new concepts, but is everywhere present in an approachable and easy style.I mentioned the three appendices. These are also compelling if advanced ideas. These are very important, and not just tacked on. The appendix dealing with God as a person for instance will provide many people with fruitful thoughts, but may also change them. -- Peter Costello The Irish Catholic Richard Rohr's books are always eagerly awaited.
