This most recent book by Rohr is an incredibly valuable further development of these insights, and contains some absolutely priceless discussion of True Self and False Self and the applications of understanding them to our everyday circumstances. Although this book was purchased from Amazon by my husband, I literally "jumped on it" as soon as it was delivered; hence, this is not one of my own "Amazon Verified Purchases". Also, this is a quick review, designed to express my unbridled enthusiasm more than deep analysis. I will leave that for more qualified reviewers, simply saying: I LOVE it: READ it!
As I indicated at the beginning, although I haven't read as much by Richard Rohr as I have by Thomas Keating and other authors who write on the contemplative theme, I find his work extremely accessible and very much to the point.Read more ›
Just finished this book. What revelations!
I figured it was just another trinket, sales of which would support Richard's "Center" in Albuquerque.
What an incorrect and snide thought on my part: this is good stuff.
I've been to "hear" the man many times now; I ALWAYS learn--it seems, along WITH him--something new.
Get the book...and be on the way to YOUR own true self.
[First, ever, review of anything.]
It took me a little longer than usual to get into the book, which keeps it below a five-star review, but it was worth the persistence. My problem was that Rohr writes with a sort of matter-of-fact authority that left me wondering if I missed the proof text somewhere along the way. Perhaps I did; Rohr has published around two dozen books since his first in 1976, and this is the first I've read.
Rohr's target is those who sense God is closer than they've been told. If you find yourself "in recovery from religion," you're in Rohr's crosshairs. He wants to introduce you to a deeper meaning to life, deeper even than the surface Christian tradition that has been your paradigm to date. While Rohr's heritage is clearly Judeo-Christian, and many of his quotes come from the Bible, he aims at uncovering the perennial truths that all religions share.
Resurrection is key, both of our Lord and of ourselves. Resurrection is necessary for new life, life in unity with God. As "children of the resurrection" (Luke 20:36), our relationship with God changes ... we "breath God in and out--much more than we `know' God, understand God, or even talk to God." There is an intimacy with God at this level that we never reach within our selfish, base existence, the "False Self."
A deep read, if you're ready to take the leap.
richard is my most reliable guide into the MYSTIC.
i've read most--if not all--of his books, so i can categorically say that with this one he compresses his wisdom into an even simpler yet multifaceted gem: the better to reflect the LIGHT that is the VERB that IS creation.
with each book, ROHR comes ever-nearer to the clarity that is SPIRIT once released from accrued religious opacity.
this book is simultaneously a primer AND yet a much deeper meditation into vivid and lucid unveilings.
