Immortal Diamond: The Search for Our True Self by Richard Rohr

Dissolve the distractions of ego to find our authentic selves in God

In his bestselling book Falling Upward, Richard Rohr talked about ego (or the False Self) and how it gets in the way of spiritual maturity. But if there's a False Self, is there also a True Self? What is it? How is it found? Why does it matter? And what does it have to do with the spiritual journey? This book likens True Self to a diamond, buried deep within us, formed under the intense pressure of our lives, that must be searched for, uncovered, separated from all the debris of ego that surrounds it. In a sense True Self must, like Jesus, be resurrected, and that process is not resuscitation but transformation.

  • Shows how to navigate spiritually difficult terrain with clear vision and tools to uncover our True Selves
  • Written by Father Richard Rohr, the bestselling author of Falling Upward
  • Examines the fundamental issues of who we are and helps us on our path of spiritual maturity

Immortal Diamond (whose title is taken from a line in a Gerard Manley Hopkins poem) explores the deepest questions of identity, spirituality, and meaning in Richard Rohr's inimitable style.

The contents of the book are well described in the Editorial Review.  What isn't mentioned is that this book is written for everyone, believer, non-believer, Buddhist, Christian, Jew, Moslem, whoever.  There are basic truths clearly described that would be recognizable to any mature adult.  His writing style is very inclusive and easy to follow.  I find myself rereading sections shortly after initially reading them because I know that there is wisdom that requires additional thought..

I have been a Richard Rohr fan for a couple of years, having discovered him about three years ago. I am totally moved by the universality of what Fr Rohr has to say. I had read the book a few months ago, and loved it so much I wanted to hear him speak it, so ordered the dvds. Reading him is like sitting down with a wise friend... so hearing him can only enhance that sensation.
