Things Hidden : Scripture as Spirituality
"Things Hidden is an invitation of Gospel proportion to move on into the life God intends, a life of joy and obedience." --Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary In this exploration of central themes of Scripture, Richard Rohr transforms the written word, discovering in these ancient texts a new and vital meaning, relevant and essential for modern Christians. Rohr offers his listeners a Christian vision of abundance, grace, and joy to counteract a world filled with scarcity, judgment, and fear--a vision that can revolutionize how we relate to ourselves, others, and the world.
