    Story
    "Unnerving Expose'"
    If you could sum up Things Hidden in three words, what would they be?

    Revealing, Intelligent and Disturbing


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Things Hidden?

    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


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Quigley?

    Peter Coyote. John Quigley reads emphatically, with a disturbing dose of moralistic fervor that sounds unctuous and annoying.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Transforming carnality into Divinity


    Any additional comments?

    This book will either draw you further into the Pascal mystery or drive you from it.

    Story
    "Another Richard Rohr Classic"
    Would you listen to Things Hidden again? Why?

    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.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Firmly grounded in Christianity but draws on other traditions as well, even if not overtly. Certainly does not give 'good' Christians a pass.


    What about John Quigley’s performance did you like?

    Well read and paced. John Quigley did a good job but I would have preferred to have Richard read it.
