... and his concordances between scripture and the steps are useful to understand the spiritual power of the 12-step journey
on May 22, 2016
Rohr writes well and his concordances between scripture and the steps are useful to understand the spiritual power of the 12-step journey. Left at that, this would have been a great book. Unfortunately, Rohr seems unable or unwilling to constantly remind the reader that he knows better than other Christians, especially the church he is a member of. He also makes some serious errors interpreting scripture at times, preferring his own 'enlightened' interpretations. A little less hubris on the writer's part would have made this book a lot better. Perhaps Father Rohr needs to do the 12 steps himself to deal with that little resentment that keeps popping up in the book? After all, humility is the bottom line in 12-step work.
