Chase Falson has lost his faith-and he did it right in front of the congregation at his megachurch. 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 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 book. Come discover Francis, the first postmodern Christian.
Other authors would tackle this subject and crank out predictable, unoriginal nonfiction; Cron's clever spin and gentle critique makes it fresh and lets it speak outside an evangelical Christian audience. Think the Italy part of Eat Pray, Love, minus the self-indulgence. Publisher's Weekly
