He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fr.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Rarely Spoken Truth  Aug 26, 2006
Rohr gives that hard to hear Gospel construct of spirituality that challenges us to accept who we are and not sacrifice our "True Self" to be "one-up" on the next person, or richer, or better; we are challenged to give up judgement for acceptance; we are challenged to follow the core tenet of Christ's teaching (and the Buddha's, for that matter) that we choose compassion over competition -- Win/Win brings more to self and the world that the traditional societal false premise of win/lose. It takes significant courage and honor, typical male virtues, to follow the heart over the dictates of culture and society. Although written for men, the message is clearly applicable to the modern woman
God Is Also Wild  Dec 6, 2005
Richard Rohr begins this revision of "The Wild Man's Journey" by defining God as "wild" in that God does not operate under human rules. God is free, that is, no matter what men do, God is "always the initiator, always good, always available." Men whose lives are based on performance and exercise of control are powerless before such wildness. Rohr pursues the theme with examples from scripture. The story of Abraham, for example, "has nothing to do with order, certitude, clarity, reason, logic, church authority, or merit. This is an utterly free God trying to create a spiritually free people." Additional topics include men's liberation, masculine and feminine spirituality, neither of which is exclusive to one gender; wild male saints; father hunger; male grief; and the powerful powerlessness of God. The appendix offers a structure for a men's group.

Though this work is written primarily for men, it has much to say to anyone who aspires to a deeper relationship with God.
great update to a spiritual classic  Oct 15, 2005
The book is a major update and revision of "The Wild Man's Journey". All chapters were improved and updated, all were shortened for easy small group use, seven were dropped, and three completely new ones added. We have a much more user-friendly version of 25 to-the-point chapters. The appendix contains a structure for your small men's group and the M.A.L.Es mission statement. You could discuss one chapter of the new book per meeting.

The book is also ideal for a man considering attending the Men's Rites of Passage (MROP) with Richard Rohr. If you know someone considering attending a MROP, you may want to forward this message to them. The new book is one of the suggested Richard Rohr resource items for men considering attending a MROP.
