Product Description

When Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God, he was talking about an utterly different way of relating to human society as we know it. He was talking about a new world order, a term recently on the lips of politicians. What a false sense of the term they have used, contends popular preacher and author Richard Rohr. "I doubt that any major political leader would align a new world order in terms of cooperation, trust, service and redemptive suffering," writes Rohr. "For all the talk of a new world order, it's simply the old world order. The 'New World Order,' or the 'Reign of God,' is the heart of the New Testament."

    Lot of words I had to stop and look up the meaning in a dictionary. I was expecting a commentary on the Semon on the Mound but it was more a book on how Christ came to change from the OT to the NT. I felt the title was a little misleading...
