When Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God, he was talking about an utterly different way of relating to human society as we know it. He was talking about a new world order, a term recently on the lips of politicians. What a false sense of the term they have used, contends popular preacher and author Richard Rohr. "I doubt that any major political leader would align a new world order in terms of cooperation, trust, service and redemptive suffering," writes Rohr. "For all the talk of a new world order, it's simply the old world order. The 'New World Order,' or the 'Reign of God,' is the heart of the New Testament."Stock #: B16203

Jesus' Plan for a New World: The Sermon on the Mount

My goodness, I don’t even recall receiving the book.

Julie Monahan
Please use a larger font.

All of Richard Rohr's books that I've read so far are great - inspiring, etc. But, with most of the Franciscan books I've ordered, please use some of those blank pages, left-over space at the end of chapters, smaller top margin, etc., & up the font at least 1 size. Will be much easier on old eyes like mine.

Jesus’ Plan for a New World

This is a book to savor and come back to for reflection. I especially loved how the author explains the Beatitudes.
