Defender of the outcast, acclaimed teacher and spiritual director, insightful psychologist, and founding member of a thriving religious community, Fr. Benedict Groeschel was not merely a man of uncommon talents but one of extraordinary achievements. Yet at heart he was a simple friar, a humble priest, and his goal in life was to follow as best he could the path God had chosen for him. For over 80 years, more than 50 of them as a priest, he faithfully walked that path. He gave hope to abandoned youth, to pregnant women who were homeless and alone, to many of those society so easily disregards. As a speaker and writer, he was responsible for rekindling the love for God in the hearts of many whose faith had grown cold. His devotion to the poor led him to found the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal with the mission to serve those who have little or nothing. A Friar's Tale is an inspiring, moving, sometimes humorous biography of someone animated by faith and devoted to love. Paperback, 144 pages. (©2015)
