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.

Worst narrator ever....human?

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Great book content made COMPLETELY impossible to listen to due to narrator who obeyed no conventions of cadence or phrasing.... Do not buy the audible version. Get the actual book and save yourself the frustration.

Will listen to again and again.

Fearless unapologetic raw

Who was your favorite character and why?


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.
