Just BREATHE.  Oct 29, 2009
OXYGEN BY RICHARD DAHLSTROM: shows us a beautiful balancing act between INHALING- relaxing in God's creation and EXHALING -taking care of our fellow man and our earth while enjoying the fellowship and beauty of it all. In our crazy world, we could all use a little reminder to just BREATHE.

Author earns place on shelf next to Miller and Lewis  Oct 22, 2009
O2 by Richard Dahlstrom is a blessing in book form. Dahlstrom demonstrates that faith comes in two forms: inward (prayer, praise, reading the Bible, etc) and outward (charity, social justice, hospitality, etc), and only by finding a balance between the two do we find our way to live out faith. He decisively indicts both sides for not pursuing all that Jesus taught and only doing what comes easily. He divides the chapters into inhaling and exhaling and then delves deeply into practices of each. The chapter on how to live in good stewardship of the earth and rebalance your budget is mind-blowing and definitely a must read. I'm definitely hearing God's call to hospitality after hearing Dahlstrom's description of how he and his family have exercised it over the years and it has changed their lives. I am more of an inhaler, so disciplines like solitude and prayer come more naturally to me, but every chapter is a wonderful read and has something for everyone whether it is a strength or weakness of the reader. It's going on my shelf next to Blue Like Jazz.
Looking for your Faith? This book helps you find it  Sep 16, 2009
Richard Dahlstrom's "O2" is a masterful piece that makes good on its promise to agitate the reader's views on faith, spirituality and serving God, in an imperfect world. From the first two sentences: "It happens every weekend. This Sunday, hundreds, even thousands of people will leave their place of worship after the final `Amen' or benediction and never return," Dahlstrom succeeds in shaking up and subsequently, waking up the spiritually sleepy reader. This is a book that entire congregations, of many faiths, would benefit from reading together. If only for the fact that it is a way to open discussion on the topic of the point of faith, where it comes in a person's life, where it goes in our busy schedules and practical steps on how to renew it today - this book is a guide to how to fix what needs mending on the topic of how we live and embody our faith daily.

Dahlstrom uses the analogy of breathing to describe how to sort out the particulars of our faith. He states with confidence that we all share either of two aspects of our faith. We are all either exhaling our faith, characterized by people who are "do-gooders" exhaustively serving others as an expression of their faith; or we are inhailing our faith, seen in the way we nourish ourselves and "pause, ponder, wait and listen" to our inner voices, as we make the big decisions that become the point of our faith, and ultimately the purpose of our lives. With simply titled chapters (Journey, Hospitality, Servitude, etc.) and generous biblical referencing, the reader is able to start and stop at will, read long or short passages as convenient and finish the book with an idea of what was the point of the matter and how to apply the new lessons to their lives.

The only detractor is the font and boldness of the print. It is written in a sans serif typeface with a light print, so light that I was unable to read it after dark, without turning on several lights. It only became an issue when I insisted on reading the book at dusk and dawn, from the convenience of sitting on my favorite flannel quilt. I can't remember when I read a book with this much interest. I also can't remember the last time I slept with a book under my pillow, because I truly couldn't put it down.

a must read  Jun 4, 2009
I will say this is a MUST read of 2008. As someone who struggles with where I fit into the scheme of life and Christianity, it really did help breath new life into my faith! If you want to buy one book this year to improve your walk with God I strongly encourage you to pick this up and read ALL THE WAY THROUGH IT.
Finding Spiritual Balance  Feb 2, 2009
Excellent read, applicable, down to earth, tangible ways to live in the world with a balance of the Inhaling Disciplines (prayer, bible, solitude, silence) and Exhaling (hospitality, service, loving people).
