March 5th, 2019

and this book about Rohr

Richard Rohr : illuminations of his life and work / edited by Andreas Ebert and Patricia C. Brockman (1993)

Undoubtedly I'm going to have some reservations about him.  But as I read I also find much good.


From his appendixes:

The Pattern of Spiritual Tranformation:

1. Order
2. Disorder
3. Reorder

Four Worldviews

1.  material
2.  spiritual
3.  priestly
4.  incarnational


Such interesting references too:

Published by the Theosophical Society, Wheaton Illinois.  Bruteau, Beatrice, Evolution Toward Divinity: Teilhard de Chardin and the Hindu Tradition, 1974

Evolution toward divinity: Teilhard de Chardin and the Hindu traditions (1974)

Bruteau has written other books too.

Rohr also cites works of de Chardin, and of Bonaventure, John Dominic Crossan.

Paul Davies, God and the New Physics, 1984

Matthew Fox

Nikos Kazantzakis, Report to Greco, 1965

Book about Thomas Berry
