Publisher's Summary

Dissolve the distractions of ego to find our authentic selves in God.

In his best-selling book Falling Upward, Richard Rohr talked about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey? This book likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense True Self must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process is not resuscitation but transformation. 

  • Shows how to navigate spiritually difficult terrain with clear vision and tools to uncover our True Selves 
  • Written by Father Richard Rohr, the best-selling author of Falling Upward
  • Examines the fundamental issues of who we are and helps us on our path of spiritual maturity 

Immortal Diamond (whose title is taken from a line in a Gerard Manley Hopkins poem) explores the deepest questions of identity, spirituality, and meaning in Richard Rohr's inimitable style.

The most profound self-identify rescuing book

The most profound self-identify rescuing book I have ever listened to. I have been into psychology, coaching and psychoanalysis for many years. Nobody has never touched so profoundly my psyche and my soul as Richard did.

This book and others written by Richard will give you all the tools and support you need to have a lasting transformation in your self-esteem, self-confidence and self-identify expansion that you will experience.

Enjoy every one of them. listen to them as many times you wish.

with love, Anderson Maia.

One of Richard Rohr's best books.

This is among the top 10 books dealing with contemplative journey. Sadly the reader mangles quite a few names and words. I would think that production editors at Audible would have taken greater care to ensure the text of the book is properly read.

Robot narrator?

I stopped listening within the first two minutes. I will not purchase anything with this narrator in the future. I love Richard Rohr, so this is disappointing.

LIFE CHANGER

An introductory guide into true spirituality. Leaving the foundational doctrine of Christ crucified to the real meat and essence of the experience of Christ - to us, in us, through us. In Him we live, and move, and have our being. Absolutely spot on and thought provoking. Increase the fire beneath the pot of faith with Immortal Diamond by Rohr. I thank God for him and his books, they have helped me immensely in my walk with God, illuminating truth and calming the frustrations and misunderstandings all to common in modern Christianity. GET THIS BOOK!!!

A new day, an old way, a transformed life

Nobody else has had the impact on my spirit as Richard Rohr. With every word I am closer to living as my true self.

The narrator is good, but I love actually listening to Father Rohr.
