Product description


Richard Rohr continues to guide us to greater wholeness. The latest example is his new book, Breathing Under Water. A prolific writer, his books have helped countless souls, especially those who struggle with issues of brokenness and seek transformation. — National Catholic Reporter

Franciscan priest and prolific author Rohr (Falling Upward) is a perfect writer on the subject of the 12 Steps. He understands how radical a change they bring about, and that the 12 Step program is preeminently spiritual. His easy-to-read book is essentially a commentary on each of the steps, with twelve chapters and a postscript that concisely tackles the big religious question of human suffering, suffering with which addicts and their families are intimately acquainted. Jesus, Rohr answers, is no stranger to suffering. ...This is a good book for those in recovery from addiction and those who love them. — Publishers Weekly

In this paperback, Rohr draws on talks he has given over the past 20 years to people in recovery. He joins Rami Shapiro, Thomas Keating, and other spiritual masters who have saluted the fellowship, encouragement, support, discipline, and wisdom of the Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step Method.

Rohr is convinced that this program "parallels, mirrors, and makes practical the same messages that Jesus gave us." In other words they are saying the same thing with different vocabulary:

We suffer to get well.
We surrender to win.
We die to live.
We give it away to keep it.

In 12 chapters, Rohr explores the Christian principles in the Twelve Steps. Along the way, the reader is treated to examinations of powerlessness, the imperial ego, keeping the heart space open, the surrender of our will to God, making amends, restorative justice, being responsible, the importance of intimacy, and the grace of God. --Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Health
