Publisher's Summary

Boys become men in much the same way across cultures, by integrating, through experience, each of five messages: Life is hard; You are not that important; Your life is not about you; You are not in control; You are going to die. Our culture has done everything in its power, it seems, to move away from this ancient wisdom. Men are lured away to dominate through money, sex, power, consumerism—and never really become men.
In this audiobook, spiritual master Richard Rohr reintroduces us to male wisdom in a way that will engage anyone who is a man, who is mentoring a young man, or who wants to understand men better, in a language being used in retreats around the globe.

looking for spiritual insights

If you could sum up Adam's Return in three words, what would they be?

inspiring,sincere,involving

If you’ve listened to books by Richard Rohr before, how does this one compare?

I like this author very much, this book is more creative than others, the idea itself is an original one

Have you listened to any of Richard Rohr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

i have listened to many books of R.Rhor, I choose this one out of curiosity

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

when he says that a wisw man is one who walks with you as if travelling together

Any additional comments?

i didn ' t finish to listen to this book yet but i am pushed forward

Good for the soul

I must admit, at moments, this was deeper then I could receive. I believe, however, that I've gotten to a place in my life where I understand that God is graciously slowly opening my mind and heart to His truths. So with that, I pressed on and I'm glad I did. Much like when I was a child, I didn't always understand what the pastor was say, but ever now and then, something made sense. I believe that is God. To be clear, with this book, it wasn't every now and then. This book is packed full of easy to digest truths that every man needs to hear. Listen to this book, consider its call to reclaim your manhood and press on. I don't know you, but I'm praying for you. You don't know me, but I could use your prayers as well.

Brilliant insight into male spirituality

I really enjoyed listening to Father Richard Rohr's thoughts on the importance of male initiation and spirituality. The ideas he shared resonated with me from my own experience. It would have been a great to have someone explain some of these insights to me 30 years ago when I was a young man. I recommend it as essential reading for men looking for meaning and purpose in their life and faith journey.
