The Trinity is supposed to be the central, foundational doctrine of our entire Christian belief system, yet we're often told that we shouldn't attempt to understand it because it is a ‘mystery’. Should we presume to try to breach this mystery? If we could, how would it transform our relationship with God and renew our lives? The word Trinity is not found in the New Testament—it wasn't until the third century that early Christian father Tertullian coined it—but the idea of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit was present in Jesus' life and teachings and from the very beginning of the Christian experience. In the pages of this book, internationally recognized teacher Richard Rohr circles around this most paradoxical idea as he explores the nature of God—circling around being an apt metaphor for this mystery we're trying to apprehend. Early Christians who came to be known as the ‘Desert Mothers and Fathers’ applied the Greek verb perichoresis to the mystery of the Trinity. The best translation of this odd-sounding word is dancing. Our word choreography comes from the same root. Although these early Christians gave us some highly conceptualized thinking on the life of the Trinity, the best they could say, again and again, was, Whatever is going on in God is a flow—it's like a dance. But God is not a dancer—He is the dance itself. That idea might sound novel, but it is about as traditional as you can get. God is the dance itself, and He invites you to be a part of that dance. Are you ready to join in?

The Divine Dance is the first popular work by a fresh thought leader. These brief essays are a distillation of Charlie's two decades of business, educational and spiritual leadership. At its heart, The Divine Dance is an invitation for spiritual seekers to experience with intelligence and passion the very Life of God. Christian teaching on the Trinity is nearly 2000 years old, but an individual's enjoyment of God can be new every day. Charlie's writing is conversational, direct and insightful, urging readers to awaken to God's personal love and take personal responsibility for their own development. The dance motif helps to convey the joy, movement and unity that are part of a person's life with God and with others. Love for God and others are inseparable. Personal growth occurs in community, not in a vacuum. Kathy Self's visuals and poetry enliven the book like a prism refracting light into beautiful colors. The Divine Dance is the first in a series of works that will capture the imagination, enliven the mind and engage the heart in a relentless pursuit of joy and wholeness. Future works include Praying Naked: Spiritual Freedom in Marriage and Seven Minutes a Week: The Bible for the Rest of Us.

The Divine Dance of Love

The Divine Dance of Love

This extended personal meditation on the mystery of Christ seeks to show how we participate in the reality which we call God by entering into the experience of Jesus.

This extended personal meditation on the mystery of Christ seeks to show how we participate in the reality which we call God by entering into, and sharing in, the experience of Jesus. In so doing the mystery of Christ is revealed and realised in us as it is in Jesus, and we become caught up in The Divine Dance of Love. The Carol 'My Dancing Day' is used as a framework: each verse focuses on a particular stage or event in the life of Jesus -- from birth to temptation, suffering, death, resurrection and ascension. The image of the dance is important, precisely because it conveys this sense of involvement, experience and partnership with Christ. It is hoped that these meditations will enable the reader to be drawn more deeply into the mystery of Christ, which, although hidden, is waiting to be discovered and known at the heart of everything, for it is in Christ himself that God invites the whole of creation to dance in his love and to enter into the fullness and the joy of life.

Just This is a collection of brief and evocative meditations and practices. It invites us to cultivate the gift of waking up to the beauty of reality in all its glorious ordinariness. With his signature blend of contemplation, theology and pastoral sensitivity, Fr Richard Rohr creates a spaciousness for the soul to grow into a kind of seeing – one that goes far beyond merely looking, to recognizing and thus appreciating. This is the heart of contemplation, the centerpiece of any inner dialogue that frees us from the traps of our perceptions and preoccupations. The contemplative mind does not tell us what to see; it teaches us how to see what we behold. Praise for Richard Rohr’s The Divine Dance: ‘A beautiful choreography for a life well-lived.’ Bono, U2
