The Saint and the Sultan brings to life an episode of deep relevance for all who seek to find peace between the West and the Islamic world.
At the recent Canadian National Spiritual Conference, the theme was, “The 800th Anniversary of the Encounter between Saint Francis and the Sultan”. The speaker, Michael Cusato ofm, a Franciscan historian from the St Bonaventure University, spoke highly of this book. We found a deeper understanding of St Francis after reading it. Recommended. Also expect some of the proceedings from the National conference to be posted in the near future - FVC
"Francis came to understand that all creation, like himself, is called to give praise and glory to God... Everything spoke to Francis of the infinite love of God. Trees, worms, flowers by the side of the road - all were for him saints gazing up into the face of God. Creation became a place to find God and, in finding God, Francis realized his relationship to all of creation."
- from A Franciscan View of Creation, page 12.
This short book (56 pages) helped me better understand the relationships between the Franciscan view of creation, the work of justice, peace and care of creation (JPIC), and God the Creator. It's could easily be a study resource for OFS ongoing formation. Recommended. - George Guimond, FVC
