We grow more spiritually by doing it wrong than by doing it right


In Falling Upward, Fr Richard Rohr offers a new understanding of one of life’s most profound mysteries: how our failing can be the foundation for our ongoing spiritual growth. Drawing on the wisdom from time-honoured myths, heroic poems, great thinkers and scared religious texts, the author explores the two halves of life to show that those who have fallen, failed, or ‘gone down’ are the only ones who understand ‘up’. The heartbreaks, disappointments and first loves of life are actually stepping stones to the spiritual joys that the second half has in store for us.


‘I thank God for Richard Rohr’s sage-like presence in our culture: I honestly don’t know where I’d be without it.’

Brian Draper


‘Richard Rohr at his vintage best: prophetic, pastoral, practical.’

Cynthia Bourgeault
