I own many, many 'daily meditations' books. If I had to keep just one, this would be it. Richard Rohr packs so much into one paragraph that the short meditations are just right. There is enough in this book to keep you on your journey of faith for years. Your life and thinking will change.

Richard's simplicity and "prophetic" voice comes across quite beautifully in this book of daily meditations. His gift for making very difficult subjects into "a-ha" & "of course" experiences for the rest of us is quite remarkable. This all comes together in small daily tidbits via this wonder-full book. He continues to remind us that true spirituality is about simplicity, love(grace), letting go, and "grounded-ness"(Reality is God's greatest ally). His prophetic voice about our personal and societal idols (power, prestige, and possessions) is at the heart of the matter.

Richard Rohr is a gifted writer, by the looks of this publication. He has distilled the essence of spirituality, something that is difficult to define and pin down, and made it meaningful, relevant and tangible. Although he comes from a Catholic background, his insights apply to anyone who is interested in seeking a deeper level of meaning in our existence. Rohr's ideas challenge us to think for ourselves, rather than simply "following the crowd" in eking out a humdrum existence. Think of this book as a collection of spiritual vitamins - something to keep by your bedside and read a passage from each night.

I have been hearing and reading Richard Rohr for many years. This daily meditation collection from a number of sources of his writings and talks is very valuable. More importantly, it has become part of my daily 'quiet time' in the morning. I consistetnly find it prophetic, personal and engaging....as any genuinely spiritual resource should be. If there is one daily meditation resource you want to get...this is it.

The meditations in this book are selections from the talks and books of Richard Rohr. Each is short and on a specific topics. Books can be used day-by-day or according to topic. There are more than enough meditations for every day. The meditations are not from the liturgical readings for the day, but rather according to the spirit of the season.

If you're a priest in need of a Sunday sermon, or a therapist, counsellor, healer or perhaps a spiritual writer who's hit the old "block," Radical Grace is an excellent source book. Containing 408 "Daily Meditations" from Richard Rohr's writings and presentations, it's one of those books creative folk should have at their finger tips. Of, course it's more than this: Keep a copy by your bed, open at any page and the message will calm your mind. A wonderful book for anyone on a spiritual path, and you don't have to be Catholic to reap the benefits.

I have been using this book as a jumping off place for my daily spiritual practice. Most of the time, I have found the selections to be thought provoking and sometimes even a deeper "challenge" to my way of thinking. Some of the selections I puzzle over - perhaps because I am not "Roman Catholic"? I would recommend this book to anyone serious about the spiritual journey.
