This is the type of book that should top a bestseller list, because it actually has the potential to change how you think about your life and pretty much everything else.
Thoughts to live by Jul 5, 2006
This is a gritty, reality-checking book, the kind you can open to any page and find there a reading to guide your day's contemplation. Richard Rohr combines his Roman Catholicism (RC) with Buddhist sensibilities in this great set of readings for those with meditation and/or comtemplation practices. Though not RC myself, I am opening this book several times a week and I am recommending it to friends.
