Now in a new edition, this thought-provoking book by popular author Richard Rohr offers a critique of religion that often creates an alternative pious world without really challenging oppression, materialism, and sectarianism in our modern world. Religion, he says, without this contemplative stance is often part of the problem. Drawing from Jesus' parable of the rich man, Rohr believes that religion can only refind itself as a transformational system if it passes through the eye of a needle, if it overcomes its own temptation to power, wealth, and fundamentalism. A true contemplative stance crosses boundaries, is not concerned with who's in and who's out. It is not a worthiness competition. In fact, the accessibility of the contemplative awareness to all is, Rohr believes, the key to the Gospel message that, "The kingdom of heaven is 'hidden in plain sight.'"

Richard Rohr

Father Richard Rohr (born 1943) is an internationally recognised ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC.org) in Albuquerque, where he is also academic dean. The mission of this school is to produce compassionate and powerfully learned individuals who will work for positive change in the world based on awareness of our common union with God and all beings. Fr. Richard's teaching is grounded in Franciscan alternative orthodoxy - practices of contemplation and self-emptying - expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized.

Fr. Richard is the author of numerous books, including Everything Belongs, Adam's Return, The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, Immortal Diamond, and Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi.
