Title: FALLING FORWARD: A SPIRITUALITY FOR THE TWO HALVES OF LIFE
Description:
In this book, author Fr. Richard Rohr offers a new paradigm for understanding one of the most profound of life's mysteries, how our failings can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom of time-honored myths, heroic poems, great thinkers, and sacred religious texts, the author explores the two halves of life to show that those who have fallen, failed, or "gone down" are the only ones who understand "up." We grow spiritually more by doing it wrong than by doing it right. With rare insight, Rohr takes us on a journey to give us an understanding of how the heartbreaks, disappointments, and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half of life has in store for us. 173 pages
