Saint Paul has always been my favourite writer, since I first started to have favourite writers. Paul evangelized me both for literature and religion. What he writes is so eloquent, and so psychologically penetrating, it must be true in some sense. The author of the present book, Richard Rohr, talks about Paul's spirituality as one of inner transformation and growth. Between them, Paul and Jesus created the human individual as a unit of worth in mankind's evaluation of things. Rohr is gentle and passionate in the extreme, and teaches us many insights of wisdom and deep religious principles. His book is sure to give you new ways to understand your faith and the marvellous truths of theology.

Would you listen to Great Themes of Paul again? Why?
Because its a mind opener. If you were like me you were raised on fear, and narrow minded Christian views that were both judgemental and quite literally childish.What a relief to listen to this. Blew me away, made me believe not only in the man Paul but helped me understand Jesus and the Christ in a way which made sense to my thinking, feeling and processing mind. I feel like Rohr's telling of Pauls transformational story allows us all a context in which to understand our spiritual unfolding and the dilemmas we face. I have fallen in love with the Jesus story, and will never see the crucifixion in the same light again. Wow :-)
Have you listened to any of Richard Rohr’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have listened to a lot of Rohrs work. This is my favourite. I have been asking myself why. I dont yet have a firm answer. But I think you can hear Rohr's own passion burn through as he "defends" Paul and reveals a story and perspective that is alive and at once speaks to our modern struggles.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I certainly got to bed a bit to late on quite a few nights because I just wanted a little bit more and a little bit more.
Any additional comments?
I hope this gives folk the huge reframe that it has given my own struggles that life brings
