Description

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.

Review quote

"To the list of amazing things about Richard Rohr add this: that in a paragraph or two, in a short daily reading, he can express an idea that stays with you all day and nudges you one step closer to becoming the person you're meant to be. It's written for men, but everyone will benefit from these 366 nuggets of wisdom and nudges toward transformation." --Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity (brianmclaren.net)
