More About Richard Rohr

Richard Rohr Fr. Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism and the Perennial Tradition. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fr. Richard's teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy—practices of contemplation and lived kenosis (self-emptying), expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized. Fr. Richard is the author of numerous books, including Everything Belongs, Adam’s Return, The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, Immortal Diamond, and Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi. Fr. Richard is academic Dean of the Living School for Action and Contemplation. Drawing upon Christianity's place within the Perennial Tradition, the mission of the Living School is to produce compassionate and powerfully learned individuals who will work for positive change in the world based on awareness of our common union with God and all beings.

Reviews - What do customers think about Simplicity: The Freedom of Letting Go?

Startling Insights  Feb 6, 2007
This book is a mind blower. Thea author pulls no punches. As when for example he calls bishops echo chambers of the Vatican. But there are profound and startling isights into the Christian spiritual life also. As for example when he says the Incarnation has nothing to do with theology but with vulnerability. For anyone wishing to enrich his or her spiritual life, this book is a must.
Simplicity - a reviewing the challenge  Feb 21, 2006
Richard Rohr book is a personal exploration of how to respond to the Gospel's without glazing over the bit we often find confronting and try to ignore- Jesus's comments on wealth and how the last shall be first. It also confronts us to stop theorising and start living. You may disagree with his views but it provides a perspective on how to live Jesus's message.
Letting Go  Oct 17, 2005
I guess the basis for Rohr's book is to Let go of the pre-conceived notions that we all have in regards to God, the church, and differing classes of people including ourselves. I enjoyed the way Rohr think's outside of the box. Overall I found this book to be a very good book. I would suggest buying it.
Is Simplicity Really This Simple?  May 17, 2004
Richard Rohr dives below the surface of rational Western culture in a dialog about God's Kingdom, being poor, social justice and living in a deeper place of simplicity where we are at home with the Jesus in us. The thoughts in this book are profound, simple, and challenging. This book truly captivated me. I did not want to put it down. My mind was stretched and my heart defibrillated as I began to see how simple it all really is... Blessed are those with very little... Blessed are those who have lost something... Blessed are those... Is the Sermon on the Mount just imagery of a life which is unobtainable to us now? His Kingdom seems to be up-side-down. And as Jesus said, "The Kingdom is here now!"
