Editorial Reviews

Catholic Extension
...a rich but still highly readable source.
Catholic Library World
This book is a wonderful conversion story and the author's intense encounter with St. Francis and St. Clare. Provides a twenty-first century pilgrimage led not by a travel guide but by Francis and Clare themselves. Gerard Straub, a former television producer (General Hospital, Capitol, The Doctors), moves back and forth between the twentieth and the thirteenth century with the ease and magic of a film maker.
Catholic Parent
Wonderful detail of Assisi when Francis and Clare walked the land, and what it's like now.
Pastoral Life
The book is a triumph of faith, and a practical review of how one can deal with doubts.
The Way of St. Francis
The book is an extended theological reflection that would be helpful to most readers as a sourcebook, or in the preparation of talks or papers on Franciscan themes.—September/October 2002
Theology Digest
...his encounter with Francis and Clare weaves their stories in with his pilgrimage to the scenes of their lives.

    Straub has given us a real gift in this book, I feel. As a conversion story it is full of little gems of humility and awe in his wonder at God's having included him in His generous and loving creation. His ability to draw us into the wonder of that beautiful little "hometown" of Francis and Clare and yet to reinforce that it is not the physical beauty of that place, but rather the spiritual beauty of this marvelous brother and sister that transcends the place -- through all God's universe and everything in it -- that is the important message in Straub's work. History, art, prayer, fallen human nature, personal pilgrimage, the true and authentic transformation so many of us are seeking pursue every day of our lives -- these are all given breath and life in Straub's words, or so I have found. I have gifted this book to several of my fellow seekers and have loaned it to others. Every one of these has found down to earth (and sometimes not so down to earth. . .) enlightenment
    for good meditation, good conversation, some real joy.

    Sts. Francis & Clare: Sources for Conversion

    As St. Francis is a man for all Ages, this book can be read on many levels. As a straightforward biography of Sts. Francis and Clare it offers a modern no nonsense rendering of the lives of Assisi's greatest progeny. The chapters on Francis and Clare have a spiritual depth that would enhance the formation and understanding of inquirers into Franciscan spirituality. Straub's honesty and openness in describing his own personal journey from being an atheist to a believer with a special evangelical vocation, the insightful musings of his Pilgrim's Diary, the selection of quotes from other writers, the description of Giotto's frescoes and the history of the churches of Assisi all add up to a tour de force. This book will have a great appeal to the general reader as well as those with a special desire to explore Franciscan and spiritual themes. Certain parts of the book radiate incandescently. The rule of synergy states that the 'whole is greater than the sum of its parts.' And yet, there are so many 'parts' in this book that seem to stand alone in excellence at least equal to the power and depth of the whole. The treatment of Francis' elegy to all of his God's creation, The Canticle of the Creatures, is truly inspired. The poem's majesty is wonderfully underscored by Straub's personal reflections and those of the other writers quoted in praise and awe of the seraphic saint's spiritually poetic genius. In closing his reflection on the Canticle with FR. Eloi Leclerc's The Language of the Soul's Night, Straub poignantly illustrates how St. Francis was as relevant in elevating souls in the twentieth century as he was in the Middle Ages and, most assuredly, will be in the future. A specific charism of Franciscanism is to be able to shed layers of meaningless diversions, vanities and preoccupations that keep us humans from either confronting or exposing the truths and essential realities of our lives. Straub is able, in the most literary and articulate fashion, to reveal his spiritual (human) doubts and shortcomings as he grapples with the profound search for meaning in his life. His 'inner life' is shared with the reader in the most intimate terms without apology or embarrassment. I felt privileged to become a part of his journey and reveled in the awareness of how wuch we humans have in common with each other.
