Breathing Under Water—Audio Book ~ CD
Only people who have suffered in some way can save one another. Deep communion and deep compassion are formed much more by shared pain than by shared pleasure. This, says Richard Rohr, is one of the great discoveries of the Twelve Step program, America's most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality.
Richard makes a case that the Twelve Steps relate well to Christian teaching and can rescue any of us who are drowning in addiction and might not even realize it—and we are all addicted in some way.
To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to "breathe under water" and discover God's love and compassion. In this exploration of Twelve Step spirituality, Richard identifies the core Christian principles in the Twelve Steps, connecting them to the Gospels.
Breathing Under Water: Spirituality and the Twelve Steps is read by John Quigley, OFM.
