Strong foundation for Gospel understanding

I borrowed this book from the library but loved it so much I wanted my own copy. Father Rohr shows how the 12 Steps reflect the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, and can be a guide for anyone seeking freedom from spiritual darkness. A good foundation for other readings offered by Father Rohr.
