Am already recommending this book to several friends. It puts things in perspective for all of us as we are met with difficulties, disappointments and griefs.
It provokes thought, offers healthy perspectives and helps one make important decisions about how to accept and grow from life's unexpected twists and turns.
This is my first introduction to Richard Rohr. He recently spoke in my city and over 1,200 people attended his lecture. His reading is conversational and pleasant.
Next to the Bible, which the author references frequently, this book provides great understanding and perspective for living completely into our second
Surprisingly, a very easy-to-listen-to book with shared insights into humanity, specifically focusing on the maturity gained with aging. Which may sound like a boring topic . . . but was not at all. It's a book that gives your mind expansion, enables one's perspective to grow, and when you have come to the end of this audio book, you may well be better for it.
As a catholic who struggles to marry what I *know* to be true from my upbringing in the faith and a burning inner wisdom that's never been able to be verbalized, every word of this book was like fresh water to my parched soul. Father Rohr puts into words how I feel, how I've always felt but not understood and then he validates it. So thankful for this book. Thank you Father
Really enjoyed this! Richard Rohr made this easy and informative so that a person can apply this to their Life Experience right now, regardless of their background. Nicely done
Richard Rohr's book describes my life these last few years. His vocabulary matches and echoes mine. I'm so thankful to find validation for this season of my life.
Richard Rohr's book explains spirituality, pain, and personal evolution simply and beautifully. Wonderful and important book.
This book has blessed me beyond words but in order to understand it's concepts i had to be in a very dark place in my life. After listening to this audio I fell like I have been resurrected!
I love to read and write books. I enjoy learning, laughing and growing (mentally and spiritually).
This book helped me to relax in my discomfort of the transition to the second half of life. What used to mean so much such as career, status, money, position, fame, competition, roles, ladder climbing and so forth seem unimportant compared to giving, being quiet and ordinary, and being okay with falling. Life includes struggles but in the second half of life, it seems they are experienced differently. I found peace and comfort reading the book and also an appreciation for the second half of life that can be a wonderful time in life. The book is probably best suited for someone 50+ who is ready to explore the blessings of being a wise elder.
i enjoyed both very much but the audible better - Rohr narrates and it is nice to hear HIS voice , inflection , tone ,word emphasis and phrasing
not that applicable to the subject
no : but for good reason - needed to go back to previous chapters often because it does challenge ones previous knowledge and thinking ... i would listen ... think on what was said and go back and need to here it again .
wonderful publication . DO NOT BE IN A HURRY TO "GET THRU IT " savor it ... let it sit .. allow it to soak ...
I was a little confused by this book in the beginning. But it is so full of the mature turths of the Bible which are so well hidden in paradox. Wonderful if you have the time to relax and listen to his whole message.
