AWESOME!!! Jun 1, 2007
This is the best daily devotional I have ever read!!! Fr. Rohr is truely a "spiritual genius"! I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for the true spirit of Jesus and His teachings in the Catholic church, you will not be disappointed!!
Very valuable Apr 18, 2006
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.
An excellent and thought provoking book Feb 26, 2006
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.
The Power of Powerlessness Jan 13, 2005
For those familiar with the work of contemporary work on the Trinity may appreciate Richard's reflection on An Image of God. Rohr appropriates a contemporary worldview of the Trinity using contradictory imagery to raise our consciousness of a relational Trinity. His description of Trinity illustrates the notion of radical grace which can comfort those wanting a deeper spirituality of love. The use of the term radical grace refers to Rohr's appeal to wisdom theology. It is through radical grace that the tension between the Father (the powerlessness of power) and the Son (the power of powerlessness) is reconciled by the Holy Spirit. Moreover, only faith sheds light why the tension must exist.
At the heart of the matter! Jan 4, 2001
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.
