Chasing Francis-Ian Morgan Cron

What a wonderful combination of fiction, nonfiction,pilgrimage and teaching on Saint Francis.
Chase Falson is a pastor of a large evangelical church and has lost his faith, so he travels overseas to visit his Uncle who is a Franciscan priest. There he travels with his Uncle on a journey to follow the footsteps of St Francis and rediscovers his faith.
The author does such a wonderful job of describing the locations, places and the feelings of the travels that I feel as though I am actually there. And he really helps us like the main Character Chase from the beginning. As he travels he writes a journal that he shares with the reading which is very delightful. Also there is lots of history but you don't get bogged down in it because it is so well placed within the story.
Love this one!
