Publisher's Summary

Rohr reprises his best-selling talks on scripture in this powerful new series. He describes the Bible as a text in travail, containing not just conclusions, but a process that mirrors our own journey (three steps forward, two steps backward).

In the three steps forward, Scripture always reveals that we are related to something infinite and that ours is an enchanted and trustworthy universe. Rohr suggests that God is different than we thought and much better than we feared. In fact, God cannot be fully grasped by thought and must not be approached in servile fear. God is present in our midst and is calling forth a people and a consciousness that is capable of divine union. This invitation is revealed in a developmental way in both the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures. The resurrected Jesus finally reveals the full and wonder-filled nature of the heart of God. As a result, Rohr says, "We have nothing to be afraid of and much to be excited about!"

    "Life changing journey!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of New Great Themes of Scripture to be better than the print version?

    Yes it makes this message . . . Effortlessly available.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The author reading / presenting the material himself makes it all the more authentic!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Every 'chapter' / talk forms a unique part of the overall theme. No specific favourite!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Every moment was memorable.


    Any additional comments?

    Priceless!

    Story
    "Cheerful charismatic presentation"
    What did you love best about New Great Themes of Scripture?

    Richard Rohr does his own thing. He is confident in his reading and research, and that is clearly reinforced by his prayer life. so when you walk with Rohr you are buying into the journey of discovery and self-discovery. You need to put yourself in a position of trusting him - and he will not disappoint. If you approach this, or other Rohr books, with cynicism you will find yourself challenging everything - and never get to the truths embedded in his words.

    I find his ability to see his own weaknesses to be one of his greatest strengths. I believe he is inspired by his prayer life and always has insight.

    "Deepened my faith and understanding."
    Would you consider the audio edition of New Great Themes of Scripture to be better than the print version?

    This is actually a series of talks so not available in print


    Any additional comments?

    Helped me to see the bible as an integrated whole. We tend to take individual verses or passages out of context. Rohr eloquently explains how the main themes of the bible develop and point us towards God and a relationship with him.
    This book has profoundly deepened my faith and understanding of the bible and of my relationship with God.
    I would recommend both to Christians and to those who feel that what they have heard the church teach has had nothing to say to them.

    Story
    "A great overview of scripture."

    Rohr takes scripture as a whole and discusses themes found throughout (macro) rather than focussing so much on individual stories (micro).
