I am 48, and for the past few years, I have wondered where the Church I grew up loving had gone. After reading this thought provoking book by Fr. Rohr, I realized that loud-mouthed members of the Church just haven't been growing up as I have been, sometimes because they can't and not because they won't. It reminded me that the nuns in middle school had warned me that I and my "discerning heart" would face great difficulties as I grew older, but that I was to persevere and stay true to my gift. Fr. Rohr's book helped me remember and understand better what they meant, which was very mysterious and rather frightening at the time.

I would recommend this to any spiritual seeker, but especially to Catholics, who have despaired over the apparent rise of rigid fundamentalism.
