Beach Book

Later this year, Tau Publishing of Phoenix, Arizona will be publishing two new books of mine. One will feature my Haitian Advent Journal from last December. The other will a book I’ve been working on for years…it is titled THE CANVAS OF MY SOUL: A Filmmaker’s Journey with Saint Francis and Thomas Merton to the Peripheries of Poverty and Prayer.

Last summer Tau Publishing released a revised and updated version of my book The Sun & Moon Over Assisi. They released this new edition of the book in both hardcover and paperback. Writing that book changed the course of my life and led me to create my own ministry of serving the poor through the power of film. The book was published in 2000 and was named the best spirituality hardcover book of the year by the Catholic Press Association. A paperback version was published in 2008. But both the original hardcover and paperback have been out of print for many years. I am thrilled the book has been resurrected…and improved. The mission of Tau Publishing is to promote Franciscan Spirituality and Franciscan authors. They need to sell books in order to continue publishing books. I strongly urge you to visit the following link, and check out The Sun & Moon Over Assisi.

And also take a moment to see other wonderful books published by Tau Publishing, including the recently released spiritual autobiography of Murray Bodo, OFM, who is, in my opinion, the best living Franciscan writer today. Any book by Fr. Murray is worth reading. Speaking about The Sun & Moon Over Assisi, Fr. Murray said, “Straub presents…a Francis and Clare who ring true on every page,” adding that the book takes the reader on “a profoundly human pilgrimage.”

Peace and blessings,

Gerry Straub
