A book to take one deeper into reflecting on Christ and the crucifixion. It is good to see Clare in her own right, and not only a follower of Francis. Important teaching about being who we are in this day and age. God longs to live in each one of us and this book is a big encouragement.

Transforming the World 13 May 2007
By Carol Blank - Published on
Format: Paperback
Ilia Delio opens with brief background information including Clare's connection with Francis of Assisi, and her "evangelical spirituality" focused on imitating Christ and making Him available to others. She also introduces us to four short letters Clare wrote to Agnes of Prague, which Delio believes contain the essence of Clare's ideas on spiritual life. The "pillars of Clare's thought," expressed in her second letter to Agnes, embrace four basic themes: gaze, consider, contemplate, and imitate. These four topics, along with close examination of the letters, provide the framework for the book. Although Delio refers to this as a "small book," and one reviewer quoted on the jacket calls it "a simple portrait," it is a text for careful examination rather than a quick read. Reflection questions in each chapter, extensive notes, and an index are added to help the reader along.

In discussing complex material, as Clare's ideas on the "poverty" of God and the "mirror of the cross," Delio draws on writings from Saints Francis and Bonaventure and others whose spiritual path was similar to Clare's. She also looks at Clare's practices and beliefs in light of today's world: "(Clare's) spirituality helps us understand that God will not transform the world for us but then again God will not transform the world without us."

extraordinary examination of a spiritual life 29 Nov. 2008
By Ms Angel - Published on
Format: Paperback
This tiny book is filled with words of wisdom about the first Franciscan woman, Clare of Assisi. In particular, it examines Clare's dedication to poverty as a way to live with and through Christ, and to achieve union with Him. Clare lived knowing that attachments to material possessions can stand in the way of Love and of the gospel life. Ilia Delio's book is filled with scholarship and intelligence, yet it gets to the heart the true meaning of this great saint's life: Clare is a model of a life lived only for Love of God. There are many sources for biographical sketches of Clare, but this book is deep and meaty in its examination of her spiritual legacy. It is a must-read for those desiring to understand Clare's understanding of the Franciscan way.

new concept of poverty 24 Sept. 2012
By claire - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The entire book's emphasis on poverty, even in relation to the Trinity is very unique. Chapter two, The Poverty of Being Human will give you ideas to think about for at least a year.

To Clare from Francis - A Connection of Faith 16 May 2013
By Mik Sutton - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book was especially meaningful in that it exemplified a life of faith-filled simplicity,
In world that caters to materialism and money, power and position, it was so refreshing to
read of a Christ follwer that refused to be lured into the system of the world. Even though
Clare lived hundreds of years ago, averice and greed, lust and selfishness have been around
since Adam and Eve took a bite of the apple. People are people, always have been, always will
be. Clare, and Francis, are lights in the darkness, shining forth into what could be in the name of
Another good read 7 Jan. 2014

But like the other Delio book I reviewed, it's also a challenging one. I read it to prepare for a talk, and although I got a lot out of it, I had not much I could share with an audience who was unfamiliar with St. Clare. I had to do so much background, I hardly covered what was in the book. Though that says more about the people to whom I spoke than about the book.
