Rohr describes how following Saint Francis' way to forgiveness and love, and "owning the darkness," can bring us out of the postmodern pit in which we find ourselves.

I was surprised at Fr. Rhore's honest and direct speaking of the current state in the Church. He does not hold back his criticism of the Church, it's leadership, or the members of the Catholic body. He draws uncanny parallels between 'our times' and the Church of today and the events that were going on during St. Francis's ministry. This is a good read for not only Catholics, but all those who wish to expand their spituality.
