Paperback

- Publisher "You are about to set out on a great adventure." Richard Rohr told his original listeners when The Great Themes of Scripture talks were recorded for St. Anthony Messenger Press in 1973. "Today the Lord will give you something new. All you have to do is ... come before the Lord expecting and wanting something more than you already have." Now, more than 100,000 tapes later, these powerful, challenging, inspiring talks are available in print thanks to the professional and sensitive editing of Joseph Martos. Martos, who compares his collaboration with Rohr to that of Rodgers and Hammerstein, says: "If I would acknowledge that the words are often mine, I must always admit that the music is Richard's." This first volume, The Great Themes of Scripture: Old Testament, offers newcomers to the Hebrew Scriptures a "feel" for their overall religious themes. But for all readers this book uniquely sounds the call of the Lord and invites response in a way that will touch lives as deeply as the original talks. Book jacket.

Richard Rohr

Father Richard Rohr (born 1943) is an internationally recognised ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC.org) in Albuquerque, where he is also academic dean. The mission of this school is to produce compassionate and powerfully learned individuals who will work for positive change in the world based on awareness of our common union with God and all beings. Fr. Richard's teaching is grounded in Franciscan alternative orthodoxy - practices of contemplation and self-emptying - expressing itself in radical compassion, particularly for the socially marginalized.

Fr. Richard is the author of numerous books, including Everything Belongs, Adam's Return, The Naked Now, Breathing Under Water, Falling Upward, Immortal Diamond, and Eager to Love: The Alternative Way of Francis of Assisi.
