A new Lent devotional, written by Boston College graduate Daniel P. Horan, O.F.M., offers readers ways to revitalize their prayer life during Lent as well as to increase their understanding of Franciscan spirituality. The Way of the Franciscans: A Prayer Journey through Lent (SPCK Publishing, 2021) is split into six chapters, each focusing on a key Franciscan spiritual master and their way of prayer. The Way of the Franciscans explores the history of the different Franciscan spiritual traditions and how they are united in their focus on living according to the Gospels. A well-known author and public speaker, Fr. Horan is the Duns Scotus Professor of Spirituality at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. He earned a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Boston College. His other publications include The Franciscan Heart of Thomas Merton and Catholicity and Emerging Personhood.
