Joseph Stoutzenberger, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies, has co-authored Looking to St. Francis: The Man from Assisi and His Message of Hope for Today, published June 2014 by Word Among Us Press. The book looks at themes found in the life and teaching of St. Francis and explores ways that those themes apply to today’s world. Some themes are Francis’ form of mysticism, peacemaking, care for the environment, chivalry, and a sacramental vision. The book also makes reference to how Pope Francis sees St. Francis as a model for the world today.
