Quest for the Grail

Richard Rohr explores the ancient legend of Parsifal and reveals the power of myth to call us to our true purpose in the world. Archetypes and symbols come to life as Rohr awakens an authentic, masculine understanding of spirituality.

The great quest stories proliferate in many media—from bible stories to action films. Legends and adventures, often centering on the journey of a knight or warrior, invite the discovery of maturity, wisdom, and ultimately knowledge and acceptance of ourselves.

In Quest for the Grail, Rohr brings home the vital significance of these legends as metaphors for our lives, showing that across cultures, myths inform and enrich our journeys. Humble humans, spiritual seekers, and heroes— we all are on quests, developing our best qualities while facing the challenges and transitions of our mortal existence.
