Publisher's Summary

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, Franciscan Father 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.

Great content!

Because I have heard Richard Rohr read his own books, I didn't care for the narrator. I don't think it is because the narrator wasn't good, I just happen to enjoy listening to Richard read his own stuff. But the book provides insights for those seeking to reconcile the scriptures with the wisdom of the 12 steps!
Richard Rohr is especially gifted as a writer and as a spiritual guide.

Will listen to again and again.

If you could sum up Breathing Under Water in three words, what would they be?

Fearless unapologetic raw

Who was your favorite character and why?

God.

What three words best describe John Quigley’s voice?

enunciates too carefully

What did you learn from Breathing Under Water that you would use in your daily life?

Humility. So much in a relatively short book. I will definitely view step 10 the way he did that rather than being a repeat of the fearless inventory (sometimes referred to as ruthless inventory) in step 4, it is more of a continual observation of my actions and thoughts and experiences calmly, objectively and compassionately. The author's discussion of consciousness leading up to this is so interesting.

Any additional comments?

I will read more of Richard Rohr's work.

Excellent

Yes it was very enlightening.
The most memorable part was towards the end of the book.
Jesus suffers with us. Helps to surrender.

Some of the best from Rohr

One of the best I've heard from Rohr. He discusses how we are all addicts and all need to find a path to healing and sobriety.
