Summary
Franciscan priest Richard Rohr presents themes from Francis of Assisi's life that he hopes will motivate readers to examine their spiritual lives and imitate the 12th-century saint's outwardly focused ministry. While Francis took the Gospel's teachings as a mandate to love others, live in solidarity with the poor, and care for the suffering, building a community around these ministries, Rohr sees as problematic some tendencies in contemporary spirituality that emphasize individualistic relationships with God. Eager to Love offers an inspiring corrective to this trend, which Rohr believes is too much in tune with secular, consumerist lifestyles. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
