From Wild Man to Wise Man: Reflections on Male Spirituality

From Wild Man to Wise Man: Reflections on Male Spirituality


A revised and updated edition of Richard Rohr's earlier best-seller, The Wild Man's Journey (which was translated into seven languages), this book reflects and incorporates Richard's experience of his past 15 years with men's work.

With Richard Rohr as mentor and guide, men, and women who care about men, will want to study and discuss this new Wild Man. An appendix provides the structure for a men's group, based on Richard's work with M.A.L.Es (Men as Learners and Elders).

"Every man who seriously desires to appreciate masculinity and to face reality, his own soul, his place in the Gospel and in society, as well as his need for conversion and growth, will be challenged by this book." —Pecos Benedictine Book Nook

"A provocative experience for Christian men who are looking for an affirmation of their maleness from their tradition." —The Journal of Men's Studies

"The focus throughout is on the difficulty of men finding mentors for our spiritual journey and the presence of the spirit to help us. I like the simple way the book invites us (men and women) to use our gender awareness to further our growth spiritually." —Mennonite
