Product Description

In this volume, Father Rohr likens our true identity to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, and separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense our true selves must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process is not resuscitation but transformation.
Immortal Diamond (whose title is taken from a line in Gerard Manley Hopkins poem) explores the deepest questions of identity, spirituality and meaning. In Richard Rohr's inimitable style, the book brings to light the mysteries of grace, death, and resurrection.

Editorial Reviews

How well do we know ourselves? So many roles and identitiesshape individual lives that it's easy to be confused about what isauthentically "us." Rohr, a Franciscan priest and founding directorof the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, N.Mex.,leads a narrative excursion to the "True Self," the core ofcharacter that lies like a diamond buried within. Writing forsecular seekers, the author claims that individuals need to allowthe false self to fall away in order to get in touch with the trueself, allowing it to breathe and flourish. Grasping onto thesuperficial identities of the false self, such as job, class, race,or accomplishments, can keep people from being the loving andgenerous conduits of the Divine that they are meant to be. God isalways communicating with humans, but those who cling to ego andsocial position can’t hear these divine messages. The authormakes clear that it is not easy to shed this falseness for truth inthe inner life, but it is a spiritual path well worth the effort.(Jan.) (Publishers Weekly, February 2013)
