Item description for The Great Themes of Scripture: New Testament by Richard Rohr & Joseph Martos...
Overview The New Testament is sometimes called the New Covenant, signifying a new relationship between humanity and God. From the viewpoint of salvation history, the New Testament is the completion and the culmination of the Old Testament. In terms of length, it is only a small portion of the entire Bible, and yet it is that portion which brings it all together. Richard Rohr and Joseph Martos look at the many ways salvation themes are proclaimed by the various authors and literary styles of the New Testament. Show More

More About Richard Rohr & Joseph Martos
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.

A Mind and Heart Opening View Of The Bible Oct 31, 2007
Fr. Richard Rohr, OFM, is one of the greatest teachers of Christianit y in America today. His style is easy to read, entertaining, and, most of all, thought-provoking. He offers a look at the bible that goes deeper and beyond the shallow waters that most Christians wade in. As a Protestant, I find that his views are eminently helpful to me as they are to Roman Catholics. This book could also be effectively used for bible study at any non-fundalmentalist church.
Great for beginning bible study Aug 1, 2001
I picked up this book a few years ago. I found it a wonderful way to read and study the Bible. I read along with my Bible and Rohr's easy to understand and engaging commentary. I reccommend this to beginners to Bible study and for a refreshing new look at the Bible
