Item description for Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the 12 Steps by Richard Rohr...
Both individuals and society are drowning in addictions, says dynamic speaker Richard Rohr, O.F.M., in this powerful presentation. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to "breathe under water" and discover God's love and compassion. Rohr's presentation was an instant best-seller on audiocassette and is now available on compact disc. Renewed interest in Breathing Under Water can be expected as Rohr will be leading retreats in 2005 that revisit and extend the original themes presented in these talks.

Reviews - What do customers think about Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the 12 Steps?
12 Steps in Christian-ese Nov 30, 1999
Father Rohr takes AA's 12 steps & puts a Christian spin on them (adding Jesus' teachings to the mix..) As a long-time fan of Father Rohr, a Franciscan priest, this is one of my favorite sets. Totally real, and REALLY helpful (even if you're not recovering from substance abuse, this definitey is a Faith-strengthen-er!) Must confess that some of Father Rohr's other stuff is WAY over my head, but these practical recordings walk through the recovery process step by step. Especially like his take on mercy. Not just words, it's an attitude -- as folks in AA humbly stand and say "I'm an alcoholic".. the church can learn to be humble like that -- Lord have Mercy. REAL mercy. We sure need it! These CDs are from the 80s (some references a bit dated); but insights still very relevant. (Thought Father Rohr did a conference a few yrs ago.. there may be an updated version.)
