Publisher's Summary

This popular and best-selling book from a renowned Franciscan challenges people to move beyond the comfort of a settled life toward an understanding of themselves that is rooted in their connection to God. Only when they rest in God can they find the certainty and the freedom to become all that they can be. Contemplation has its place at the heart of Christianity, a place that allows people to experience how “everything belongs”.

Openness and Clairity

Richard explores the contemplative way of existence. This opens the possibilities of Christ for everyone. Especially in the ti.e we live right now.

Now THIS is Good News

Dying to self, while perfectly natural and necessary, is a Truth that I fought and ignored the first 55 years of my life. Rohr helps me see how Christ engineered this regardless of my ignorance and hiding. Thank you, Richard.

I love Richard Rohr, but

This book to me is just more of the same. If you're going to subtitle a book, the Gift of Contemplative Prayer, I would expect some advice on how to pray. And indeed, that was why I bought it. It doesn't come naturally to me. He mentions one prayer at the beginning, but never again talks about how to pray or what prayers might help people be more contemplative. Instead, it was like he put on a Richard Rohr broken record. I'm on board with his messages about not making religion a win/lose game, men being repressed emotionally because of our lack of ritual, believing that all faiths have truths and value, our culture is too materialistic and that a lot of people in organized religion are about as anti Jesus's message as someone can be. However, he has said all of this in other books and audio tapes. It was very repetitive, and I think he said this much better in Falling Upwards and the Divine Dance.

This one was very short but it felt like a slog. At a certain point, I think you just have to accept that you said everything you have to say. You don't need to keep repeating yourself. Or, put out a book that guides people on how to pray.

I am God and I am the devil. It is kind of weird, bro. Wow!

Contimplation

Coming from a more progressive inclusive faith I can say Richard Rohr does it again. I enjoyed his challenges and the importance of church structure near the end of the book. something for me to consider more about. will listen for a second time.
