Reviews - What do customers think about Quest For The Grail?
Quest for the Grail Jun 19, 2000
Intelligent marriage of the Arthurian legends and the story or journey of present day man/woman. The process in life of recovery from loss,or betrayal "sacred wound" to a fuller life is presented in a modern frame. We have all been there! Rohr makes us realize that we are not alone in this experience and with courage and persistence we can go on to fuller lives.
A book definitely worth taking the time to read! Feb 22, 1998
