This quintessential Catholic coffee table book, A Work of God features a stunning collection of award-worthy photography and soul-stirring essays from the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal. Known for their untamed beards and tattered grey habits, the CFR friars have a fierce commitment to gospel poverty and a consuming passion for proclaiming Christ—all of which is honestly depicted in 186 pages of stunning imagery.
Witness authentic religious life as lived by one of the fastest-growing religious orders in the world, dramatically portrayed in this large-format pictorial essay highlighting their life from the streets of New York to the slums of Honduras.
A Work of God is a work of art. Printed on heavy, photo-quality paper, it measures 10.5” x 11.25.” The book's six essays are startlingly honest and provocative. In one a friar recounts a near death experience. In another, the author laments a poor addict ignored by local church goers. In every essay, the common thread is the friars’ disarming admission of their own weaknesses and their thirst to follow Jesus wholeheartedly.
This volume deserves to be on every coffee table in every Catholic home or parish office. It will be sure to open the hearts and imagination of all who flip through its pages.
Your purchase of A Work of God supports the Friars in their ministry to the poor around the world.
