Publisher's Description

Four of Richard Rohr's popular programs on Scripture!

Talk One—Faith in Exile: Biblical Spirituality for Our Times
Attempting to find meaning in a secular culture leads only to dead ends. Rohr reviews what Scripture teaches about the challenge of living a life of faith and finding meaning "in exile."

Talk Two—Hearing the Wisdom of Jesus
To follow the intention and the teaching of Jesus as presented in Scripture, we are invited onto a narrow path where Jesus does not give us answers but constantly refreshes us with wisdom.

Talk Three—The Parables: Letting Jesus Teach Us
Rohr defines seven categories of parables that convey various ways of entering sacred space. Storytelling should destabilize our logic and help us allow God to be in charge of our lives.

Talk Four—Love Your Enemy: The Gospel Call to Nonviolence
Jesus tells us to "Love your enemy." Within this framework, Rohr examines three pivotal questions about violence and our response to Jesus.

Author Bio

Fr. Richard Rohr is a globally recognized ecumenical teacher bearing witness to the universal awakening within Christian mysticism and the Perennial Tradition. He is a Franciscan priest of the New Mexico Province and founder of the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Fr. Richard's teaching is grounded in the Franciscan alternative orthodoxy—practices of contemplation and lived kenosis (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. Fr. Richard is academic Dean of the Living School for Action and Contemplation. Drawing upon Christianity's place within the Perennial Tradition, the mission of the Living 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.
