Summary : Richard Rohr on Scripture: Collected Talks, Volume Two

Four of Richard Rohr's popular talks 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.
