Chase Falson has lost his faith – and he did it right in front of the congregation at this mega church. Now the elders want him to take some time away: far away. So Chase crosses the Atlantic to visit his uncle, a Franciscan priest, where he encounters the life and teachings of Francis of Assisi and rediscovers his ancient faith. Follow Chase’s spiritual journey in the footsteps of Francis, and then begin one of your own through the pilgrim’s guide included in this audio book. Come discover Francis, the first postmodern Christian.

It sounded like it was recorded in a bathroom, but the story kept me listening.
I highly recommend this convicting read and I hope that you will take to the Journey, go with Francis and find Jesus for the first time, again.
I really like the honesty in the central character as he relates to some of the modern churches stigmas, but likewise I disliked how much he presented the evangelical church as so far gone, while idealized the Catholic guys in the process. I know he had a point to make, but it feels so "setup" that it loses some authenticity.
Slow, honest, normal.
"Contemporary wisdom literature at its very best"
The story of Chase will stay with me forever... the young, broken evangelical minister who cannot play the game any more will win your heart and reveal the face of St Francis to you again. This book might not be the greatest literary novel but in its pages the grace of God is revealed and the hope of the church. I can't tell the story, that would be unfair... but characters that warm your heart, challenge your mind and change your life exist in these pages...
