Customer Questions & Answers for
Orbis Books Poverty and Joy: The Franciscan Tradition

William Short sums up the Franciscan tradition as 'chaotic an intutive, creative and affectionate, radical and obedient', and shows it to be as appealing a way of life today as in the past. Focusing on the importance of the Franciscans' founders, St Francis of Assisi and St Clare, the author offers us an historical introduction to the Order before illuminating their vision. He reflects on the key themes of the Incarnation, poverty as a way to God, suffering and healing, and of creation, humanity and nature in harmony. Along the way we meet key figures, such as Bonaventure, Angela of Foligno and John Duns Scotus, who have helped shape the tradition and bring it to life through the ages. Provery and Joy forms a bridge between contemporary concerns and the wisdom of the past. It illuminates a tradition that is refreshing, inspiring and diverse in its outlook, with much to teach us today.
