SEEKING A GOSPEL LIFE 
Fr. Lester Bach, OFM, Cap
 A profound guide of values for all of the Franciscan families.
An in depth spiritual journey of "going from gospel to life and life to the gospel". For all Franciscans to better understand their Franciscan calling. Well written and a joyful read - especially the personal reflections of Fr. Bach. You can almost visualize the twinkle of humor in his eyes and his gentle smile while waiting for you to catch and understand a complicated thought that he just made simple for you. Plus, he does all a favor by giving us a road map of "contemplative time" after each chapter. In the Preface Fr. Bach writes; "Franciscan readers will find that this book focuses on a life founded on the Gospel. They can use it to support their efforts to be faithful to their Franciscan calling. For non-Franciscans it offers direction on how to live a gospel life and helps to understand Franciscan spirituality." A powerful  book to pass along as a gift - spreading the first hint of Franciscan joy!  Paperback, 116 pages. A NAFRA publication

CAPTURING THE SPIRIT OF FRANCIS & CLARE

By Fr. Lester Bach, O.F.M. Cap.

Putting ideas into practice is where "the rubber hits the road." as someone has said. If secular Franciscans practice what they explore in these pages, we will produce a harvest of faithful Franciscans who bring a special gift to people in the Church and beyond."

TO SET THEMSELVES FREE
A continuous Guide to the Life and 
Rule of the Secular Franciscans

...by Teresa Baker, SFO

To Set Themselves Free, by Teresa Baker, SFO, is a book that fills in many gaps of formation. "Allows Secular Franciscans [and others] to look at the past, encourage a truthful encounter with the present, and explore the dialogue between the two which leads to a positive change in themselves and our society. Francis' original intent and design was not much different. He took a long, hard look at his present, examined what Christ had called for in the past, and set out to make changes in himself accordingly.  These changes led to changes within the entire society in which he lived." ...the text offers ways to engage in a solid formation to Franciscan life. ...I would especially encourage all formators, whether for initial or ongoing formation, to read the "Guide for Formation Directors" at the beginning of this book.To Set Themselves Free is another fine resource for deepening our understanding of the Secular Franciscan way of life. - Lester Bach, O.F.M. Cap. 260 pages, 8 1/2 by 11, paper back, spiral bound. A NAFRA Publication.                          ( Order 633-7  Price $27.00)

CRUCIFIED LOVE
A FRANCISCAN PERSPECTIVE
Bonaventure's Mysticism of the Crucified Christ
...by Ilia Delio, O.S.F.
STUDIES IN FRANCISCANISM. Highly recommended. "The author studies various aspects of Bonaventure's mystical world view, leading to an understanding of the relevance to contemporary issues such as individualism and relatedness, peace and violence, and the problems of the created world's relationship to the person who seeks to love God in all and above all." - from the forward of the book  "An act of love is why Jesus came, not a response due to sin." -from a review by Kevin, SFO - ." From the Introduction: "Francis was a true lover of Christ, according to Bonaventure, because he was perfectly conformed to the Crucified Christ both in spirit ad in flesh. The stigmatized Francis signifies to Bonaventure that if one desires happiness and peace, one must contemplate God and strive for mystical union through conformity to Christ Crucified, the Word of God. ... Since Christ is the true image in whom we are created, he is our model of what it means to be authentically human."  Paper, 268 pages, Franciscan Press. (Order FP90988   Price $15.95 )
