Product description

We are all addicted in some way. When we learn to identify our addiction, embrace our brokenness, and surrender to God, we begin to bring healing to ourselves and our world. In "Breathing Under Water," Richard Rohr shows how the gospel principles in the Twelve Steps can free anyone from any addiction--from an obvious dependence on alcohol or drugs to the more common but less visible addiction that we all have to sin.

Review quote

...."Breathing Under Water" is a must-read for any person who recognizes the need to go "inward" on their soul's journey to question what their relationship is with God, themselves, and others. The author guides us on a journey that begins with a powerlessness or being shipwrecked on a deserted island. It is God's greatest surprise and constant disguise. We always want to be the manager of our lives. But God makes sure that several things will come our way that we cannot manage on our own. ..... What "Breathing Under Water" comes to be is an understanding that those people who have undergone suffering and pain come up to be a compassionate people, loved by God, to be there for others experiencing a similar challenge in life. Rohr summarizes that a graced moment from God is when the suffering people can love and trust a suffering God, and through this deep transformation, will save and be there for one another.--Paula J.
