We are all addicted in some way. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and our world. In Breathing Under Water, Franciscan Father Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from any addiction from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we all have to sin.

Seeing 12 steps in a whole new light tying the spiritual principles to the teachings of Jesus.
the one enriched

Fearless unapologetic raw
enunciates too carefully
Humility. So much in a relatively short book. I will definitely view step 10 the way he did that rather than being a repeat of the fearless inventory (sometimes referred to as ruthless inventory) in step 4, it is more of a continual observation of my actions and thoughts and experiences calmly, objectively and compassionately. The author's discussion of consciousness leading up to this is so interesting.
I will read more of Richard Rohr's work.

The concepts put forth are insightful, relevant and thought provoking. Anyone who has worked the twelve steps may appreciate his viewpoint. Anyone who has not, might be a little mystified. The reader begins to sound a bit unctuous at times when over emphasizing a point.

A slight tendency towards overdramatizing the content.
