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!"

Adult Spirituality. Refreshing. Liberating.

Made me appreciate the simplicity of God's plan with us humans. I felt encouraged. Father Richard clears up so much of the religious confusion that is strangling Christians today. His honnesty is breathtaking. Thank you for this gift that served me as a guiding light on my spiritual journey.

Renewing listening !

Where does New Great Themes of Scripture rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The Best and needing to be heard over and over

Any additional comments?

It would be wonderful if these conversations could be 'translated' into book form

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).

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.<br/>This book has profoundly deepened my faith and understanding of the bible and of my relationship with God.<br/>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.
