In this exploration of the central themes of Scripture, Richard Rohr transforms the written word, discovering in these ancient texts a new and vital meaning, relevant and essential for modern Christians. Rohr offers his listeners a Christian vision of abundance, grace, and joy to counteract a world filled with scarcity, judgment, and fear - a vision that can revolutionize how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world.

Light to faith
Rohr's several books on spirituality. Rohr's thinking is always striking and practical.
Opening the eyes of faith.
This book can be read straight thru;but then comes the assimulation with silence, pauses,
and at you own pace.

Revealing, Intelligent and Disturbing
Revelations of how Jesus' last name was not Christ, but that Christ was the transformation of Jesus ( a man ) sacrificed not in the usual way one might understand human sacrifice (e.g. a suicide bomber) but as the inevitable outcome of love and mercy, akin to the Pascal Lamb, a symbolic and yet real offering of peaceful innocence. Obviously, this is an oversimplification of the many overly, yet carefully explained observations of the author
Peter Coyote. John Quigley reads emphatically, with a disturbing dose of moralistic fervor that sounds unctuous and annoying.
Transforming carnality into Divinity
This book will either draw you further into the Pascal mystery or drive you from it.
Yes, a fresh take on the Bible that makes sense of seeming contradictions in the text.
This book is meant to move you along the path to greater spirituality and a deeper understanding of the Bible. As I travel the path I think I will get more from it each time I listen to it based on where I am at the time.
Firmly grounded in Christianity but draws on other traditions as well, even if not overtly. Certainly does not give 'good' Christians a pass.
Well read and paced. John Quigley did a good job but I would have preferred to have Richard read it.
