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.

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.

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.

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.

The dichotomy of Rohr<br />

I find it ironic, borderline hypocrisy, that someone who writes so much on grace, mercy, and forgiveness has such an obvious disdain for his own culture and uses the word " Mega Churches with so much disdain, you can hear it in his writing. If you can get past that, their's a lot of quality theology in his work. Thankfully I've learned to read between the lines with Mr. Rohr and it works for me. Overall a quality read.

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

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.

Great listening and very helpful to enjoying God

Loved the narrator who I think expressed well the author. A beautiful and challenging listen. It has helped to relate to God more in the moment of is, and to avoid running into my own Oz like fantasy of hoping that God might wave a wand to take me home. When God is at home within, for and with me and God with us. I think that in some ways there is an over emphasis on the Devine to the neglect of the humanity of Jesus Christ and I find the thought of everything being sacred perhaps too gushing. Anger or wrath seems sacrificed to a cultic love almost of positivity as though anger or wrath might be seen as apart from the loving justice of God besides mercy?

Wonderful

As always, Richard Four presents his interpretation of Christianity with conviction, and it is refreshing to find alternatives to the tired old church dogmas.

The Divine Dance opened my eyes

This is an amazing book. Drop expectations and previous programming and be ready to have a new revelation. Rather than take away, it enhances our belief and love of God and creation as an everflowing river of love through the Holy Trinity. Thank you Mr. Rohr. The reader is calm and inspiring.

Insightful, beautiful and refreshing

Richard Rohr has mastered the art of describing the mystery of the trinity and our ordained ability to connect with Yahweh in such beautiful words that excite the soul. I love his use of science and history to place our present moments in context.
