Publisher's Summary

The Trinity is supposed to be the central doctrine grounding Christianity, yet we're often told that we shouldn't attempt to understand it because it's a mystery. But what if we breached that mystery? How might it transform our relationship with God?

Although the word trinity isn't found in the New Testament - it wasn't until the third century that it was coined - the idea of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit was present in Jesus' life and teachings. In this book, internationally recognized teacher Richard Rohr circles around this paradoxical idea - and circling around is an apt metaphor: Early Christians applied the Greek verb for dance to the mystery of the Trinity, saying whatever is going on in God is a flow - it's like a dance.

meditation book

I used this audio book as a form of prayer..... listening to it at least 15 minutes daily. Beautifully written with captured deep contemplations. The author is brilliant and uses his God given gifts in this wonderful story.

Phenomenal!

This book rescued the idea of Trinity after evangelical fundamentalism tainted it for me. I would've preferred Rohr's voice since I've grown quite attached to it, but the reader does a very good job.

Give thought to the Trinityy

Rhor gives you something to ponder if you have not thought much about the Trinity or a new perspective if you have thought a lot about the Trinity

Love Richard Rohr

I love Richard Rohr. Every time I read anything he writes I feel closer to the Divine. This book is a deep book and I found myself in the presence of the Divine on every page. Great book. You won't want to put it down.

Life becomes a matter of showing up and saying yes

It's all about wiling to participate in the divine flow or keep it within our-self and suffocate.
If you don't share it you lose it but it is always there waiting for you to access.
This divine life within you. It's for everyone, no one has been left out.
God is the breath of our being. I am who I am. It's a constant bond with the Divine. An interplay with one another.
A mystery and yet when you deny the existence of the Divine within, you deny your true self.
Free will. Love can only thrive and expand inside of free will. We make the decision. To be or not to be.
This momentous moment can occasionally be caught but never taught.
Breathe in breathe out. YAH WEH.

Batter my heart, three person’d God (Holy Sonnet 14)
John Donne, 1572 - 1631
Batter my heart, three-personed God, for you
As yet but knock, breathe, shine, and seek to mend;
That I may rise, and stand, o’erthrow me, and bend
Your force to break, blow, burn, and make me new.
I, like an usurped town, to another due,
Labour to admit you, but Oh, to no end.
Reason, your viceroy in me, me should defend,
But is captived, and proves weak or untrue.
Yet dearly I love you, and would be loved fain,
But am betrothed unto your enemy:
Divorce me, untie or break that knot again,
Take me to you, imprison me, for I,
Except you enthrall me, never shall be free,
Nor ever chaste, except you ravish me.

Hallelujah

Affirming of deep spirit KNOWING for decades. Confirming. Awe inspiring. Compelling and inspiring of the critical and lost contemplation that opens the door to the divine dance with our creator, our friend, brother and savior and the ever present breath and spirit of YHWH. Amen!

An inviting approach to enliven faith

I found this a very worthwhile listen. The narrator's voice complimented the topic. I would like to explore the Franciscan way more as a way to deepen my faith because of this book. I like the blend of the mystical exploration and the scientific inclusion.
