Richard has outdone himself with his new book--bringing together the many themes of his Franciscan world view! Brie Stoner is a delightful voice asking the hard questions for women in today's world. She was marvelous in the CAC's course on Mary Magdalene, and brings her thoughtful questions to this podcast. This podcast is a MUST for those drawn to pan-entheism. (sp.?)
