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!"

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.
