SEEKING A GOSPEL LIFE 

Fr. Lester Bach, OFM, Cap

RECENT  RELEASE! An in depth spiritual journey of "going from gospel to life and life to the gospel". For all Franciscans to better understand their Franciscan calling. As usual - a well written and a joyful read - especially the personal reflections of Fr. Bach. You can almost visualize the twinkle of humor in his eyes and his gentle smile while waiting for you to catch and understand a complicated thought that he just made simple for you. Plus, he does all a favor by giving us a road map of "contemplative time" after each chapter. A great book to pass along as a gift - spreading the first hint of Franciscan joy! (Jim Hein,SFO) 

In the Preface Fr. Bach writes; "Franciscan readers will find that this book focuses on a life founded on the Gospel. They can use it to support their efforts to be faithful to their Franciscan calling. For non-Franciscans it offers direction on how to live a gospel life and helps to understand Franciscan spiritualtiy." Paperback, 116 pages. A NAFRA publication.

FRANCIS OF ASSISI:WRITER AND SPIRITUAL MASTER.

 By Thaddee Matura, OFM.

But he did leave some writings that have been preserved by the Franciscan family ... this book is a rich presentation of the core elements of Franciscan spirituality as drawn from the writings of Saint Francis himself."
