Summary

This popular and best-selling book from a renowned Franciscan challenges people to move beyond the comfort of a settled life toward an understanding of themselves that is rooted in their connection to God. Only when they rest in God can they find the certainty and the freedom to become all that they can be. Contemplation has its place at the heart of Christianity, a place that allows people to experience how “everything belongs”.

Fantastic content but boring reader voice

I loved the content but found it horrible to listen to as the reader was so monotone to listen to. Having heard Richard Roth reading his own books and expecting to hear the words articulated with the passion that they deserve, the boring, let's make sure we've articulated every syllable really didn't cut it. Sorely disappointed by the reader and after listening to a few chapters gave up and will be buying the book and reading it myself.

Everything Belongs

This is a very informative book one which you end up listening to chapters over and over . I had this in print first and then on audio as going over chapters is much easier with Audio. It is read beautifully, and with clear and easy to follow tones. Once you make time to listen you can't help to want more. I would like to have a go at the group session at the end with others , if anyone is intrested? it will provide some reassurance, as it is a very detailed and clever book. Howeve, it's written so everyone can access and understand it. A credit to Richard Rohr.

Another book to put on your must read list

This book is fab. It is full of all that is good for your soul/heart and how to come to know and appreciate that Everything Belongs to our creator - God. Enjoy.

Contimplation

Coming from a more progressive inclusive faith I can say Richard Rohr does it again. I enjoyed his challenges and the importance of church structure near the end of the book. something for me to consider more about. will listen for a second time.

Openness and Clairity

Richard explores the contemplative way of existence. This opens the possibilities of Christ for everyone. Especially in the ti.e we live right now.

Now THIS is Good News

Dying to self, while perfectly natural and necessary, is a Truth that I fought and ignored the first 55 years of my life. Rohr helps me see how Christ engineered this regardless of my ignorance and hiding. Thank you, Richard.

I love Richard Rohr, but

This book to me is just more of the same. If you're going to subtitle a book, the Gift of Contemplative Prayer, I would expect some advice on how to pray. And indeed, that was why I bought it. It doesn't come naturally to me. He mentions one prayer at the beginning, but never again talks about how to pray or what prayers might help people be more contemplative. Instead, it was like he put on a Richard Rohr broken record. I'm on board with his messages about not making religion a win/lose game, men being repressed emotionally because of our lack of ritual, believing that all faiths have truths and value, our culture is too materialistic and that a lot of people in organized religion are about as anti Jesus's message as someone can be. However, he has said all of this in other books and audio tapes. It was very repetitive, and I think he said this much better in Falling Upwards and the Divine Dance.

This one was very short but it felt like a slog. At a certain point, I think you just have to accept that you said everything you have to say. You don't need to keep repeating yourself. Or, put out a book that guides people on how to pray.

Transformative

A beautiful guide to help one see. The words are cathartic and encouraged the rebirth of my spirit in the love of the Lord.

Finally Reading

I first heard about Richard Rohr years ago when a recovery program was saving my life a day @ a time. This was the perfect book at the perfect time, finishing today. There's a depth of real affirming wisdom mixed with a tiny bit of ignorant social comment . im taking the depth of good.
