"A provocative experience for Christian men who are looking for an affirmation of their maleness from their tradition."-The Journal of Men's Studies

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.
