Publisher's Summary

The enlightenment you seek in other religions has been present in Christianity from the beginning. Richard Rohr, a global leader in spiritual awakening, helps you recognize the forces (such as ego resistance and dual thinking) that separate you from your deeper self. Then, drawing from Gospels and the greatest Christian contemplatives, he shows you what it means to be spiritually awake. You will learn why your ego resists change and growth, what is useful about popular ideas such as the law of attraction, what Jesus, the first mythical leader in the West, can teach you, and how you can enhance spiritual awareness without sacrificing reason.

Everything I've been feeling lately

I'm in RCIA right now to get confirmed in spring of 2020. This book put into words a lot of what I've been feeling lately, and gave me a renewed sense if hope and faith for the future. I know I'll come back to it again again to further develop my spiritual insight and strategies for deepening my relationship with God.

exceptional insights on Christianity

Richard Rohr has taught me that I can end my quest for Spiritual meaning. It was with me all my life. I was exposed to and taught Christian Spirituality in a language that did not speak to me, nor did I understand. Even New Age versions have lost their ability to communicate. Richard gives us the truth in a way that resonates with what Jesus wanted us to experience. You get a taste for that when you experience Richard's writing. If you want to find yourself, start with the Naked Now and then explore his other works. E

Awakening

Read Richard Rohr before, but this book is a succulent summary of all his teachings, poetic and didactic at the same time. It reads like a riddle yet offers clarity. Thanks

Engaging as also

As with every book by Richard Rohr, if my mind should wonder, it usually will miss something insightful. I then go back to where my mind left off. The author is never easy to read but I keep buying the next book I haven't read.

An opened door with a broken lock from the inside.

Loved it! Looking forward to using the appendix chapters for meditation practice and review of self reflection.

Much needed wisdom

I always struggle with living in the now and this was a very helpful book. I will keep it and listen to it more and hopefully put it in practice in my everyday life.

AWESOME WISDOM!

I just finished hearing this book and am starting it over to hear again. I guess I seek Spiritual growth and this book opens areas of thought that honestly redonate within me. So if you believe in God and would like to stretch and grow, than I'd highly recommend this book! WISDOM IN ACTION!°

Wonderful.

I have listened to a few audiobooks by Richard Rohr and this is one of the very best. The breadth of his knowledge and understanding is both impressive and comforting. If you tire of just church services and books professing to know what God thinks, and you want to draw closer to God with a personal relationship without any intermediaries (except Jesus), then I would urge to to buy this book. Also, praise for the narrator. He is perfect.
