About the author: Regis Martin is Professor of Theology and Faculty Associate with the Veritas Center for Ethics in Public Life at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. He earned a licentiate and a doctorate in sacred theology from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome. Martin is the author of a number of books, including Still Point: Loss, Longing, and Our Search for God (2012) and, most recently, The Beggar's Banquet (Emmaus Road). He resides in Steubenville, Ohio, with his wife and ten children.
The Beggar's Banquet is a feast of reflections to savor while meditating on the astounding mystery of God's love for His people. Dr. Regis Martin infuses these discourses on Christ, His Mother, the spiritual life, and the saints with a wide breadth of influences—the writings of popes, mystics, and theologians, great works of literature, and even poetry. The author rekindles the familiar Gospel message with ever deepening wonder, whetting the appetite for that which alone truly satisfies: the Bread of Life.
