Summary

“We are indeed 'saved' by knowing and surrendering to this universal pattern of reality. Knowing the full pattern allows us to let go of our first order, trust the disorder, and, sometimes even hardest of all - to trust the new reorder. Three big leaps of faith for all of us, and each of a different character.” (From the introduction)

A universal pattern can be found in all societies and in fact in all of creation. We see it in the seasons of the year; the stories of Scripture; the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus; the rise and fall of civilizations; and even in our own lives. 

In this new version of one of his earlier books, Father Richard Rohr illuminates the way understanding and embracing this pattern can give us hope in difficult times and the courage to push through messiness and even great chaos to find a new way of being in the world.

An ode to the middle way!

This is all about loving the grey areas of life.... finding Christ there and being able to look at things beyond dualism.... i’ll be replying this quite often as well as buying the book to put notes in.

highly recommended

This was a truly enlightening book. Highly recommended for anyone who seeks some guidance on their spiritual path. Richard Rohr is truly a beacon that guides us to Christ. Very well narrated, I almost forgot it was not Richard himself speaking. I will read this book again many times. May we Christians hear but also be doers on this earth. Love triumphs over everything.

2nd time reading was even better. I wish I could chew the words and swallow them so they can be a part of me. i have loved Christ more through this teaching.

A bridge across The Great Divide

An integral and sacred approach to living as a true member of The Body of Christ in this time of world chaos. If even 1% of 1% of humanity reads this book, LOVE will win. If just 1 person reads this, LOVE will win.

Remarkable content. Thoroughly useful. Marginal narration. A review requires at least fifteen words

For those who question what they have believed…

I’ve been in ministry for over 30 years. In the last six years I have begun to ask questions about the doctrines I have been immovable on. I have been “certain “ about my beliefs. I was also stale and that launched me to read and listened to others outside my frame of mind. I entered a time of change and growth.

I know many would accuse me of being an apostate. I would have done the same a few years ago. If you’re questioning your beliefs give this book a listen/ read. You may find answers you are seeking.

Wonderful

A very wholistic overview of our current place in history in the collective and individual mind.

I use to really enjoy Richard Rohr..

I've listened to most of Richard Rohr's books and rated them all 5 stars. i feel like this one pushes an agenda I had not heard from him before. Disappointing (for me at least).

Why not Richard Rohr?

Incredibly profound and important ideas and concepts are found in this book. But the narration is lackluster and pedantic. Richard Rohr talks to you. This narrator talks AT you.
