WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR JESUS TO BE "CHRIST"?
Richard Rohr, one of the world's most influential spiritual thinkers, delivers his long-awaited book on Jesus. In this radical message of hope, Rohr shows how "Jesus" + "Christ" reveal the divine wholeness at the heart of things—and what that means for every one of us.
In his new book, Richard Rohr shows how the combination of those two names reveals a divine wholeness at the heart of all reality—and what that means for every one of us. In his classic style, drawing on history, theology, and psychology, Fr. Rohr shows how Jesus Christ can be seen as a tangible portrait of exactly how God works. "The whole of creation is the beloved community—the child of God—not just Jesus," he writes. In a world where religion too often divides, Rohr's understanding of the Incarnation changes not just the significance of Christmas, but how we read history, relate to nature and each other, and find our highest purpose each day.
