"Richard Rohr is one of the great spiritual masters of our age. Of any age." --James Martin, SJ, author, Jesus: A Pilgrimage
"What a treasure! Richard Rohr has meticulously and lovingly excavated the jewels from the Christian tradition and offers them in luminous handfuls to those of us from any and every (and no) religion, reconciling otherness, elevating consciousness and unlocking the gates of the heart." --Mirabai Starr, co-author, Mother of God Similar to Fire
"This book is a wonderful testimony to the life and teachings of Richard Rohr, prophet, teacher and mystic, who has lived his Franciscan life 'at the edge of the inside.' By distilling the Gospel into the law of love, Richard has provided a healing balm for a wounded church, for those who have felt left out or shut out, or simply for those who are seeking a depth of spiritual meaning. Time and again his message is summed up in the simple truth: God is unconditional love." --Ilia Delio, OSF, Villanova University
Richard Rohr, OFM, is a Franciscan priest, the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, NM, and one of the most popular spiritual teachers today. Drawn from his many talks, books, and online Daily Meditations, this collection introduces many of the teachings for which he has become known, all organized around the central theme of Love.
Interwoven with a probing personal interview, the teachings gathered here illuminate Richard's lifelong journey of growing in love—a journey open to all who are willing: how we love God by loving others, how we learn to love ourselves, and how we ultimately seek and find love in everything. Experiences from Rohr’s life, both joyful and sorrowful, illustrate how the path has unfolded for him and how we each might come to know love more intimately.
