Library BLOGChase Falcon, pastor of a mega-church, has had a crisis of faith.  His elders have insisted he take some time off, so he travels to Italy to retrace the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi.  “Chasing Francis, a Pilgrim’s Tale” (248 C), is “written in a genre called wisdom literature, which is a delicate balance of fiction and non-fiction, pilgrimage and teaching.”  Author Ian Cron writes not only a fascinating and imaginative story, but also includes a guide for individual or group reflection.  As one reviewer wrote:  “Caution! Reading this book may cause spontaneous kindness, charity toward others, and a total overhaul of the way you think about what it means to be a follower of Christ.”

Carol Jensen, Church Librarian

Note:  I plan an inventory of the church library shortly.  If you have library materials that you have finished with, please return them so I won’t think they are lost.  Thank you!
