Eric Doyle was a man of vision. It was a vision of Christ seen through the eyes of St. Francis of Assisi, which vision brought a unity and a dignity to all creation, as well as a fraternal connection with Christ, the first brother of all. This same vision led Eric to his fascination with Teilhard de Chardin on the one hand and his interest for mother earth and ecology on the other. In 1974, Eric's dream to return to Canterbury, the place where the Franciscan story in England began in 1224, was fulfilled., Eric alerted us to the wealth of the spiritual life, prayer, devotion, philosophy and theology that saturate our Franciscan heritage. He sought answers for contemporary in ecology, liberation theology, ecumenism and the place of women within the Church. On the 20yth anniversary of Eric Doyle's death, Josef Raischl and Andre Cirino present a collection of his extensive writings. This volume of more than 600 pages includes articles on Franciscan Spirituality; St Bonaventure's and John Duns Scouts' theology; Teilhard de Chardin; and various theological and spiritual themes, such as the theology of religious life or the future of the papacy. Thhroughout the text, the editors wove biographical notes, photos and memories of people who knew Eric.

Includes audio CD with two of Eric's recorded talks.
