Product Description

What if changing our perception of God has the potential to change everything?

God is not what you think. Visions of an angry, distant, moral scorekeeper or a supernatural Santa Claus handing out cosmic lottery tickets to those who attend the right church or say the right prayer dominate our culture. For many others, God has become irrelevant or simply unbelievable.

In The Divine Dance, Fr. Richard Rohr (with Mike Morrell) points readers to an unlikely opening beyond this divinity impasse: the at-times forgotten, ancient mystery of the Trinity-God as utterly one, yet three.

Drawing from Scripture, theology, and the deepest insights of mystics, philosophers, and sages throughout history, Fr. Rohr presents a compelling alternative to aloof and fairytale versions of God:

One God, belovedly in communion, as All-Vulnerable, All-Embracing, and All-Given to you and me.

The Divine Dance makes accessible and practicable the Christian tradition's most surprising gift.

God as Community.as Friendship.as Dance.

Are you ready to join in?

Endorsements

Finding the sweet spot where contemporary science meets ancient mysticism, and theology meets poetry, The Divine Dance sketches a beautiful choreography for a life well-lived. In our joy or our pain, true life is always relational, a flow, a dance. (And was always meant to be.) - Bono, U2

This is Richard in peak form, doing what he does best: showing you how the best ideas for the future have actually been here, in the Jesus tradition, the whole time. Our favorite Franciscan has done it again! - Rob Bell, Love Wins

Richard Rohr is one of the great spiritual masters of our time, indeed of any time. The Trinity will of course always remain a profound mystery, but after reading Father Rohr's book, you will experience it as a mystery that can, and will, transform your life. - James Martin, SJ, Jesus: A Pilgrimage

The Divine Dance is an example of why Rohr has had such a profound influence on so many Christians seeking to balance reason and mystery, action and contemplation, not to mention faith and real life. - Nadia Bolz-Weber, Accidental Saints

Editorial Reviews

Finding the sweet spot where contemporary science meets ancient mysticism, and theology meets poetry, The Divine Dance sketches a beautiful choreography for a life well-lived. In our joy or our pain, true life is always relational, a flow, a dance. (And was always meant to be.) —Bono, U2

Seriously friends, this is Richard in peak form, doing what he does best: showing you how the best ideas for the future have actually been here, in the Jesus tradition, the whole time. In these pages it’s the Trinity—that old familiar word—that suddenly gets infused with insight and electricity as you see just how practical and helpful and healing and inspiring and provocative and dangerous this conception of the Divine is. Our favorite Franciscan has done it again! —Rob Bell, Love Wins
 

Richard Rohr is one of the great spiritual masters of our time, indeed of any time.... The Trinity will of course always remain a profound mystery, but after reading Father Rohr's book, you will experience it as a mystery that can, and will, transform your life. —James Martin, SJ, Jesus: A Pilgrimage
 

The Divine Dance is an example of why Rohr has had such a profound influence on so many Christians seeking to balance reason and mystery, action and contemplation, not to mention faith and real life. —Nadia Bolz-Weber, Accidental Saints

 

The Divine Dance is a joyful plunge into what is often dry academic mystery. Richard Rohr shares his exploration into the sacred and challenges us all to come along on the nourishing journey to community. —Simone Campbell, SSS, A Nun on the Bus

The Divine Dance reminds us that God is a holy community.... This book calls us to be like God—to belong to each other, to be one as God is one, and to refuse to do life alone. —Shane Claiborne, Jesus for President
 

Richard's heart is to reform Christianity...by making clear the very shape of God.... The wisdom contained within these pages will enable us all to join in the dance of life! —Francis MacNutt, The Healing Reawakening
 

This beautifully-written book can do far more than change your troubled thoughts about God: it can change your way of thinking about God entirely. —Brian D. McLaren, We Make the Road by Walking
