Meet the Author
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.

This was my first encounter with Richard Rohr, thanks to the helpful staff at Koorong - and what a blessing he is! Rohr is a profound thinker who has a breathtaking understanding of comparative religion and mythology, anthropology and beyond. What is special about his writing is that he can make this wisdom available to a reader who does not have this background. He challenges in a loving way our understanding of Christianity and reaffirms the faith with his wisdom. An excellent read. Highly recommended. Have now moved on to read further material by him - which is proving equally affirming and nourishing!
