Review:

"I've now read it twice and found it equally compelling both times. It's a remarkable book." --The Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Rev. Dr. Rowan Williams

"It seems the world never gets tired of writing about and falling in love with Francis of Assisi. Ian Cron does it again, but with real insight, imagination, and courage." --Father Richard Rohr, O.F.M. Center for Action and Contemplation

"Chasing Francis is absolutely seductive. This one is a feast for the soul as well as a great, churning, joyful romp for the spirit!" --Phyllis Tickle, author, The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why

"Chasing Francis creates a unique and meaningful contribution to the emerging conversation about faith and life in today's world." - Brian McLaren, author, A New Kind of Christianity --- Brian McLaren, author, A New Kind of Christianity

"Ian Cron weds historical facts with his creative imagination to give us a twentieth century feel for a saint who, more than anyone since New Testament days, lived out Radical Christianity."
---Tony Campolo, PhD, professor emeritus, Eastern University
