From Wild Man to Wise Man: Reflections on Male Spirituality is a revised and updated edition of Richard Rohr's earlier best-seller, The Wild Man's Journey: Reflections on Male Spirituality. For this new work, Rohr added three chapters that discuss John the Baptist, Saint Paul and grief. An appendix provides a structure for a men's group, based on Rohr's work with M.A.L.Es (Men As Learners and Elders), a program of the Center for Action and Contemplation, which Richard Rohr founded and now directs in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Wild Man to Wise Man

Excellent and very insightful, especially as we consider the challenge of the state of Fatherhood in the World and "Absentee Fathers" in our children's lives. Father Hunger and The Father Wound are real. Richard Rohr does a great job to give any reader great insight, comfort, knowledge and reassurance that our journey is real and necessary. Have already started to re-read during my 3am wakeup calls.

Thought Provoking

I read two to four pages each day. Some sections I had to read more than once. I read them to see how they applied to my life, and what changes I need to make to live my life more serenely / self satisfying. During the summer, I intend to read it again
