It may seem shocking to compare our relationship with God with the notion of "dating." But this book does. With fresh insight and a deep personal spirituality, Horan points out that the desire, uncertainty, and love we experience in relationship with God resembles our earthly relationships: We set aside time for the people who are most important to us. Horan reminds us that St. Francis of Assisi understood and even described his relationship with God in a similar way. Drawing from the Franciscan tradition, Dating God encourages us to see St. Francis's spirituality in a new light, challenging us to reexamine our own spirituality, prayer, and relationships, and inviting us into a more intimate relationship with our Creator.

Review:

"A fresh new voice in Christian spirituality who reminds us that the Creator is active in every moment of our lives and shows how our lives are filled with, as the Franciscans say, pax et bonum: peace and goodness." -- James Martin, S.J., author, The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything.

"...explores how to maintain a loving, lifelong relationship with God, other human beings, and all creatures" -- Murray Bodo O.F.M., author, Francis: The Journey and the Dream

"Dating God is the perfect primer on Franciscan spirituality" -- Beth Knobbe, author, Party of One

"Spirituality doesn't get any better than this! A splendid book!" -- Michael Leach, author, Why Stay Catholic? 

"Weaving modern cultural references with rich Franciscan tradition and using clear, straightforward language, Horan ensures a wide appeal to his joyful call to prayer and reflection -- Liguorian magazine (July/Aug 2012)

"...clear, concise and insightful. Dating God is a rich treasure of Franciscan spirituality for a world in need."-- Ilia Delio, O.S.F., author, Compassion: Living in the Spirit of St. Francis

"The idea of 'dating God' may be a little jarring at first, but in Brother Dan Horan's hands it becomes an inspired way to find and channel our longing for God. He has done a remarkable job of bringing the wisdom  of St. Francis into the Facebook age." -- Paul Moses, author, The Saint and the Sultan
