Immortal diamond : the search for our true self by Richard Rohr( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dissolve the distractions of ego to find our authentic selves in God In his bestselling book Falling Upward, Richard Rohr talked about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey? This book likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense True Self mu

Eager to love : the alternative way of Francis of Assisi by Richard Rohr( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Rohr focuses his attention on all frames and doorways to the divine--the alternative way of Francis of Assisi. Francis of Assisi, one of the most beloved of all saints, was at once very traditional and entirely revolutionary in the ways of holiness. As a standing paradox, he both stood barefoot on the earth and yet touched the heavens; he was grounded in the church and yet instinctively moved toward the cosmos; he lived happily inside the visible and tangible, and yet both suffered and rejoiced in the invisible. Rohr places the tradition as first practiced by Francis, and subsequently by others, within a context for the uninitiated audience. This is not a historical accounting, but rather a perspective about how the alternative orthodoxy can deepen spiritual life for anyone, whether Catholic, Protestant, Jewish, secular, or spiritual seeker. "Eager to Love" is grounded in the Gospels, the prophets, a broad blend of psychology and theology, and in literature and art, to continue to communicate through all the sources that articulate specific alternative ways of understanding God with us
Everything belongs : the gift of contemplative prayer by Richard Rohr( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This popular and bestselling book of the 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."

Job and the mystery of suffering : spiritual reflections by Richard Rohr( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The ancient story of Job that grapples with the question of why there is suffering in the world even for those who lead a good and upright life has challenged, perplexed, and comforted readers for millennia. Here Richard Rohr shares his understanding of the book, both in its historical setting and as a most important message for today. The book speaks most strongly to those whose own world has fallen apart, but in its essence, it is a call to each reader to let go of old certitudes and goals and to place faith and trust radically in God alone." "This book is a spiritual commentary and chapter-by-chapter Scripture study of the many themes that occur throughout the book. In this exploration many questions are raised as much about the reader's own life as Job's, and from this process is promised deeper understanding. In the course of the story, Job witnesses to the reality of pain, but also to gaining a new sense of joy and freedom and restoration of soul."--Jacket

The enneagram : a Christian perspective by Richard Rohr( Book )

5 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A decade ago, Crossroad helped to introduce the Christian world to the ancient personality-type system of the Enneagram with the publication of Discovering the Enneagram by Richard Rohr and Andreas Ebert. At the time, it was believed the Enneagram had its roots in Sufi mysticism. Not, in this new edition of Discovering the Enneagram, simply titled, The Enneagram: A Christian Perspective, Rohr and Ebert suggest that the Enneagram is genuinely Christian, dating at least to the Desert Fathers, with pre-Christian sources. --back cover

The good news according to Luke : spiritual reflections by Richard Rohr( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Rohr shares his excitement and understanding of Luke's Gospel message for today's reader." "Grounded in scholarship but accessible to a general audience, this commentary sheds light on the main themes of Luke's Gospel. In simple terms he works through each theme in a twofold way. He first addresses individual concerns, duties, and possibilities, and then connect them to the larger picture of cultural and ecclesial values." "As an experienced retreat master, and through his many journeys to other countries and cultures, especially in Africa and Latin America, Fr. Rohr has a fascinating perspective to share that can nourish and inspire both individual readers and the church at large." -- Book jacket
Enneagram II : advancing spiritual discernment by Richard Rohr( Book )

7 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in 3 languages and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Discovering the Enneagram introduced readers to a Christian understanding of this ancient tool of discernment. Enneagram II shares the experience of Richard Rohr and others in how this understanding of type can help individuals grow in the spiritual life. The reflections and insights come from a two-day workshop in which people of each of the nine Enneagram types were gathered into groups to discuss the ways in which the gifts and shortcomings of each type worked in the concrete events of everyday life. Father Rohr, as leader of the workshop, both comments on each of the types and shares his own twenty-year experience of working with the Enneagram." "In the Enneagram theory of personality, each individual has a central compulsion or preoccupation arising from inherited structures and the influences of environment. This central personality type also has one chief gift, and from these central traits emanate a whole network of preferences and tendencies. The Enneagram recognizes nine basic types, assigns each a number on a circle, and describes the influences and interactions of the various types." "While the first book focused on the compulsive aspects of each of the types this book is a work in progress in using the unique gifts and strengths of each type. It is invaluable for those who are using the Enneagram and for those who wish to put it to work in their lives."--Jacket

Filled with sayings, stories, quotations, and appeals to the heart, specific methods for identifying dualistic thinking are presented with simple practices for stripping away ego and the fear of dwelling in the present
