Francis of Assisi fell so in love with God and God’s Word that he wanted nothing more than to live the Gospel. His understanding of Scripture shaped the way he strove to imitate Jesus in every aspect of his life. Franciscan priest, Scripture scholar, and teacher Fr. Hilarion Kistner, explores how Francis heard, lived, and proclaimed the Gospel. He considers Francis’ profound love for the Gospel, the movement of the Holy Spirit through the written word, the heart of the Gospels, and how Francis lived in the Gospel light.
