Publisher's Summary

Both individuals and society are drowning in addictions, says dynamic speaker Richard Rohr, O.F.M., in this powerful presentation. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to “breathe under water” and discover God’s love and compassion.

Great presentation

A real humble down to earth guy this Richard Rohr. Very realistic presentation on the nature of human suffering and the remedy found in truly experiencing Christ’s sacrifice. Society does a great job of turning the world upside down, but this book really sets things upright again.

So good

Richard Rohr is so real. The twelve steps is not just for alcoholics and other addictions. We all are addicted to something. Even our own opinions. This lecture gives much to think about and to look deeper within and find our true selves no matter how broken we may be.

I’m Breathing Again

I bought this book several months and hadn’t listened. Recently I’ve been in the deepest depths. By chance I decided to listen and it has revived my soul! It’s actually miraculous! I can breathe again.

Wonderful insight and perspective into the 12 step

I really loved listening to Fr. Rohr's application of the 12 steps as tools to spirituality. as a recovering alcoholic the 12 steps gave me a plan for building a relationship with my Creator. Fr. Rohr demonstrates how that happens.

Breathing Underwater by Richard Rohr

I have always thought that Richard Rohr's ideas on "Breathing Underwater have been the cream of his thinking in general;ThisAudio presentation confirms that for me. It has been many years since I have heard him speak on the subject. This audio presentation is a re acquaintance for me with Richard. Thank you for making this available. Jim Voss.
