What Do We Do With the Bible? Summary

What Do We Do With the Bible? by Richard Rohr

What do we do with the Bible? Does an ancient, sometimes violent and contradictory text that has been used to justify violence, racism, misogyny, homophobia and more, really have anything to teach us today? In this small but powerful book, Richard Rohr explores how we can read the bible in a contemplative and intelligent way. Focusing on Jesus' own method of using the Hebrew Scriptures, he shows us a way of interpreting the Bible that follows God's mercy, inclusion and compassionate justice, and creates a foundation for a hopeful vision from the beginning to the end of time. Warm and accessible, What Do We Do With the Bible? will give you a deeper, more genuine understanding of the Bible and transform your experience of Scripture - whether you are reading the Bible for the first time or returning to it over and over.

What Do We Do With the Bible? Reviews

The Universal Christ: Rohr sees the Christ everywhere, and not just in people. He reminds us that the first incarnation of God is in Creation itself, and he tells us that God loves things by becoming them. Just for that sentence, and there are so many more, I cannot put this book down. -- Bono, U2
The Divine Dance s not only Richard Rohr's best book; it's the best book on the Trinity I've ever read. Tender, human, both pastorally and psychologically brilliant, this is the work Rohr was born to do . . . An instant spiritual classic. -- Jonathan Martin, Author, How to Survive a Shipwreck
Falling Upward: Understanding the spiritual aspects of aging is as important as appreciating the systems and biological processes that age us. Richard Rohr has given us a perfect guide to what he calls the further journey, a voyage into the mystery and beauty of healthy spiritual maturity. -- Mehmet Oz, M.D., host of the 'Dr. Oz Show'
The power of Immortal Diamond is impossible to exaggerate. With the cutting skills of a surgeon and the heart of a Franciscan, Richard exposes the misperceptions and counterfeits that have shaped our faith. He then promises and delivers a staggering change of perspective along with a taste of the intimacy of all love, both human and divine. Every word is a rare gift from a true elder and a worthy guide. -- Paula D'Arcy, author, Gift of the Red Bird and Waking Up to This Day
Richard Rohr continues to guide us to greater wholeness. The latest example is his new book, Breathing Under Water. A prolific writer, his books have helped countless souls, especially those who struggle with issues of brokenness and seek transformation. * National Catholic Reporter *
