Richard Rohr’s spiritual classic—revised and with a new reading guide
The Gift of Contemplative Prayer
The one book every Rohr reader must own. This bestselling guide goes to the heart of Christianity and teaches us how to let go of ego and open to the connecting and integrating power of contemplation.
This popular book from the renowned Franciscan challenges people to move beyond easy assumptions toward an understanding of themselves that is rooted in a connection with God. Rohr shows us that contemplation, at the heart of Christianity, is a place where "everything belongs."
Reviews and endorsements
“Rohr at his finest: insightful cultural critique woven with strong connection to both the marginalized and the contemplative. This small book brings prayer and solitude together with the wounds of the world in insightful synthesis.”
—The Other Side
“Rohr gets to the heart of Christianity and what it means to be contemplative. It is the sort of book one could recommend (or give) to someone who is searching for something ‘more.’”
“Simply written yet deeply challenging… At the base of all reality, Rohr writes, is God’s ‘radical grace.’”
