Product Description

Nearly every man deals with some form of hurt in his life. On The Threshold of Transformation acknowledges this pain and deals with it directly and redemptively. While much in our culture today would have us believe that failure and suffering are inherently bad, Fr. Rohr helps men see that pain is a primary doorway through which they can pass to reach their authentic, best selves, which is where they encounter God.

Publisher's Description

For men, pain is very real.
So is the power to transform it.
In one of the opening meditations of this book, male spirituality expert Richard Rohr writes, "We need to fail, to fall, to jump into the central mystery of our own existence, or we’ll have no way of finding our true path." Those words serve as the starting point for a potentially transformative experience, one in which men come to grips with the fact that some form of suffering or letting go is essential to achieving wholeness, holiness, and happiness.
With nearly every man dealing with some form of hurt in his life, On the Threshold of Transformation acknowledges the pain and deals with it directly and redemptively. While much of our culture today would have us believe that failure and suffering are inherently bad, Fr. Rohr helps men see that pain—in whatever form it takes—is a primary doorway through which they can pass to reach their authentic, best selves, which is where they will truly encounter God.
Ultimately, this book of 366 daily meditations helps men learn how to transform their pain so they don’t pass it on. With Fr. Rohr as their guide, the path to male spiritual transformation can be found and followed.

Editorial Reviews

"Richard Rohr is one of the wisest people on the planet (other than my soon-to-be-wife). In a world of shallow spirituality, Richard takes us deep—deep into ourselves and deep into God. He has been a close friend and mentor to me over the years, but he has also been raising up generations of contemplative activists—Christians who pray and act for an end to the ugly things in this world like poverty, war, and arrogance. Richard is a spiritual grandfather. His life and teaching must make Francis of Assisi, and Jesus, smile." —Shane Claiborne, author, activist, and recovering sinner, www.thesimpleway.org


"To the list of amazing things about Richard Rohr add this: that in a paragraph or two, in a short daily reading, he can express an idea that stays with you all day and nudges you one step closer to becoming the person you're meant to be. It's written for men, but everyone will benefit from these 366 nuggets of wisdom and nudges toward transformation." —Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity (brianmclaren.net)


"Richard Rohr describes how to transform rather than transmit the pain in our life, a lesson that we all desperately need to hear." —Dr. Mehmet Oz, The Dr Oz Show


"This immensely helpful book . . . provides the inspiration to catapult readers into the adventure of male spirituality. As usual, Rohr delivers a rich treasure trove of wisdom." —Frederick and Mary Ann Brussat, www.SpiritualityandPractice.com


"Father Richard Rohr has gathered innumerable luminous jewels of wisdom during a lifetime of wrestling with self, soul, God, the church, the ancient sacred stories of initiation and its modern realities, and the wilder and darker dimensions of the human psyche. His new book, On the Threshold of Transformation, is a great and gracious gift for men—contemporary men longing for lanterns on the perilous path to male maturity, a path that reveals secrets of personal destiny only after descending into the swamps of woundedness, shattering emotion, and personal demons. A rare, true elder in these fractured times, Richard Rohr opens the way again for men to sacrifice the juvenile life of win/lose contests and to eventually uncover their souls—their authentic and unique way of participating in and joyously contributing to this miraculous world." —Bill Plotkin, Ph.D., author of Soulcraft and Nature and the Human Soul
