Francis for Men: 'Otherwise, We Need Weapons

Overview

Markus Hofer has accomplished the remarkable feat of holping us to see Saint Francis, not as the birdbath saint, not as "Brother Happy," hot as a man. He has shown us the characteristics of Francis and the events of his life that are particularly of benefit to men. He has imagined how Francis might comment upon these events him self. He has done all this in an effort to help men learn what can be particularly illuminating for them in Francis' story.

Editorial Reviews

Mike Vaccaro
What Markus Hofer has given us is a Francis who is accessible to us, completely relevant to life in the 21st century. The Francis to whom we are introduced is a friend, a mentor, a role model, an older brother whose wisdom rings ever truer now, making a complicated world seem simpler, fuller and friendlier. It’s a wonderful blueprint for a rich life.
columnist, New York Post, August 2003
St. Anthony Messenger Press
Chris LaPlaca, Vice President, Communications, ESPN Review: It is amazing in many ways that what Francis espoused 800 years ago resonates so brightly today. Hofer has done a wonderful service for us all. There are a lot of lessons in this book for those who are ready to listen -- a difficult assignment in this day of cell phones, pagers and instant everything, but one well worth accomplishing.
