How Did I Miss This?

How is it that I am coming up on the 5th anniversary of my Profession as a Secular Franciscan, and no one has ever suggested that I read something by G.K. Chesterton?

This book is fantastic! I devoured about 40 pages of it right off the bat. THIS is what Franciscans-in-formation should be reading. Not "touchy-feely-New-Age-liberal-Communist" propaganda with trite poetry and 70's artwork, like I read in formation. This is the Real Deal.

If you're a Franciscan and you haven't read this book, get your hands on it. If you're not a Franciscan, this book might turn you into one (and that's a Good Thing.)
