Publisher's Summary

The enlightenment you seek in other religions has been present in Christianity from the beginning. Richard Rohr, a global leader in spiritual awakening, helps you recognize the forces (such as ego resistance and dual thinking) that separate you from your deeper self. Then, drawing from Gospels and the greatest Christian contemplatives, he shows you what it means to be spiritually awake. You will learn why your ego resists change and growth, what is useful about popular ideas such as the law of attraction, what Jesus, the first mythical leader in the West, can teach you, and how you can enhance spiritual awareness without sacrificing reason.

exceptional insights on Christianity

Richard Rohr has taught me that I can end my quest for Spiritual meaning. It was with me all my life. I was exposed to and taught Christian Spirituality in a language that did not speak to me, nor did I understand. Even New Age versions have lost their ability to communicate. Richard gives us the truth in a way that resonates with what Jesus wanted us to experience. You get a taste for that when you experience Richard's writing. If you want to find yourself, start with the Naked Now and then explore his other works. E

Awakening

Read Richard Rohr before, but this book is a succulent summary of all his teachings, poetic and didactic at the same time. It reads like a riddle yet offers clarity. Thanks

Everything I've been feeling lately

I'm in RCIA right now to get confirmed in spring of 2020. This book put into words a lot of what I've been feeling lately, and gave me a renewed sense if hope and faith for the future. I know I'll come back to it again again to further develop my spiritual insight and strategies for deepening my relationship with God.

Engaging as also

As with every book by Richard Rohr, if my mind should wonder, it usually will miss something insightful. I then go back to where my mind left off. The author is never easy to read but I keep buying the next book I haven't read.

Perhaps the most fascinating Rohr book of all

If you are trying to understand why and how many Christians are turning to contemplative prayer and
other ways of more directly connecting with Jesus, this is a book you'll enjoy. It also helps explain why
Christianity is having a harder time reaching out to younger generations... If you think outside the box
and yet love the Holy Trinity -- you've got to read this book. Rohr shares vibrant and clear thoughts
about where we need to head with our faith -- staying aware of the need for ongoing change (both
personal and institutional).

Awe inspiring

I have found so much joy and satisfaction in this book, that it has immediately become the number one staple of my library. I especially value how the author approaches Jesus and Christianity with a sincere truth purpose, leaving out more mainstream (church) political / egotistical motives.

The explanations about Jesus'way, the meanings of his teachings, and those of scripture passages, ring so true and allow embarking on a new, refreshing, powerful adventure to higher awareness.

The narration could not have been better, and feels completely in sync with the author's intended message.

Thank you, Mr Rohr, for writing this book and touching my life like no other has been able to touch it before.

An opened door with a broken lock from the inside.

Loved it! Looking forward to using the appendix chapters for meditation practice and review of self reflection.

Much needed wisdom

I always struggle with living in the now and this was a very helpful book. I will keep it and listen to it more and hopefully put it in practice in my everyday life.

Christian vision in a modern context

Transformational fir those of us who want to merge the modern sensibility with a Christian contemplative world and self view.

Wonderful.

I have listened to a few audiobooks by Richard Rohr and this is one of the very best. The breadth of his knowledge and understanding is both impressive and comforting. If you tire of just church services and books professing to know what God thinks, and you want to draw closer to God with a personal relationship without any intermediaries (except Jesus), then I would urge to to buy this book. Also, praise for the narrator. He is perfect.

This book is one of Richard Rohr’s best, in my opinion! He is so aware of our Christian education training being quite locked in a system that obscures the message of Jesus. He understands where we’ve come from. He describes it, and shows us a path that moves forward into a deeper and wider understanding of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. The appendices at the end are wonderful. Rohr has placed his best short summaries of vital issues at the end. This 2020 Audible book is concise and clear.

In the Rohr

A remarkable book.
His insights, perception and, explanations of the divine is enlightening.
He manages to get you to understand what should be incomprehensible.
I found that this book requires total concentration as it is condensed with a wealth of insight and didactic reflections that is apophatic.
It is an enjoyable book that I will need to read over.
