Something is wrong with the speed setting!!

What would have made Silent Compassion better?

This recording slows down and speeds up making it extremely irritating to listen to. I have given up - frustrating!! Don't buy it unless it gets fixed.

dualism against dualism

Its a challenge to criticize one's own tradition without falling into the dualism which the author condemns. Throughout the book one does not find the word "symmetry". Instead, one finds an admiration bias in favor of Buddhist spirituality. The title does not reflect the content. That being said, Rohr finds ways to provoke Christians into wondering about the beauty of a tradition which has placed too much emphasis upon correct words rather than other multifaceted approaches to the Mystery of God.
