Chasing Francis by Ian Morgan Kron

This story is an enjoyable combination of fiction and non-fiction with a little romance as well.

Chase, a disillusioned Evangelist pastor in a wealthy parish, has a spiritual crisis, so he visits his uncle, a Franciscan friar for advice.  His uncle invites him to visit Italy on pilgrimage and "chase" St Francis.

During his time in Italy, Chase learns what is important and what is not.  He develops a spiritual relationship with St Francis, and he discovers what is missing in his church. these things include helping the poor, beauty, and transcendence.  He has some fun as well, visiting a nightclub with the friars!
