A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life

Written by Richard Rohr

Hardcover -- 240 pages -- Wiley -- March 2011

In Falling Upward, Franciscan Father Richard Rohr seeks to help readers understand the tasks of the two halves of life and to show them that those who have fallen, failed, or "gone down" are the only ones who understand "up." Most of us tend to think of the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life, but the whole thesis of this book is exactly the opposite. What looks like falling down can largely be experienced as "falling upward."
