In one of the opening meditations, male spirituality expert 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 summarize the central idea of all 365 meditations in this daily guide for men.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover 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 which men come to grips with the fact that some form of suffering or letting go is essential to achieving wholeness, holiness, and happiness. With nearly every man dealing with some form of hurt in his life, On the Threshold of Transformation acknowledges the pain and deals with it directly and redemptively. While much of our culture today would have us believe that failure and suffering are inherently bad, Fr. Rohr helps men see that pain--in whatever form it takes--is a primary doorway through which they can pass to reach their authentic, best selves, which is where they will truly encounter God. Ultimately, this book of 366 daily meditations helps men learn how to transform their pain so they don't pass it on. With Fr. Rohr as their guide, the path to male spiritual transformation can be found and followed. Richard Rohr is a Franciscan priest and the founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He is renowned for his retreats and lectures on male spirituality. Fr. Rohr is the author of many books, including The Naked Now , Adam's Return , and Everything Belongs . He lives in Albuquerque. For men, pain is very real. So is the power to transform it.
