For men, pain is very real.
So is the power to transform it.
In one of the opening meditations of this book, male spirituality expert Richard Rohr writes, "We need to fail, to fall, to jump into the central mystery of our own existence, or we'll have no way of finding our true path." Those words serve as the starting point for a potentially transformative experience, one in

If I had read this book religiously as a devotional every day like a good boy, I should have finished it in one year. Instead, it took me two years to read. Sometimes, because each reading took me several days to absorb. Other times, because I simply forgot or was too busy with other readings. Nevertheless, this has been by far the BEST devotional I have ever read in my 25 year Christian life. If I could summarize this book in two words: "deep" and "spiritual" would be it. These readings hit at ...more

Daily depth for men

This is truly a daily "confrontational" reader for men who want to discover the depths of soul and significance - a true reminder that everything belongs.

This book is designed as a daily devotional. Readings are based on Rohr's previously published writings and spoken messages. This is great book for men (and women who want to better understand men). There is something good, insightful, provocative here each day. I expect to keep this book at hand for quite some time. Highly recommended..

Some reflections really hit me where I was, others did not.
Some of the questions made me think, others did not.
I guess that is typical of all devotional type books - I was just expecting a little more from Rohr!!

Finally an author who addresses issues facing men, from an intelligent approach that brings together the best of psychology and meaning of faith in God

“Shadowy material resides inside each one of us, but the man who is willing to face his own capacity for darkness will discover his deepest inner goodness and the presence of the divine within him. Some men never discover the divine presence within because they can't bring themselves to face their demons. Don't try to engineer this process or manufacture any angels. It will be done to you; just do not hate or fear the falling.” 3 likes
“Once you have met your own soul, you know that you are being guided. You are being led from within, and even the inexorable wheel of life is your teacher. It is the cycle of failure and renewal that slowly lowers you into the arms of a very safe God.” 2 likes
