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 decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped hundreds of thousands realize what is at stake in matters of faith—and it is not religion as usual. Yet Fr. Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus Christ. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus’s last name? Too often, declares Rohr, our understandings have been held captive by culture, nationalism, and Christianity itself.

Drawing on history, theology, and psychology, Rohr articulates an exhilarating and ultimately more sensible view of Jesus Christ as a portrait, so to speak, of 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.

Fans of Rohr’s earlier works will find here a synthesis that reveals the broadest, most hopeful vision for humanity imaginable. Newcomers will be drawn to a science-friendly spirituality that feels both modern and timeless. All will value Rohr’s practical insights on mindfulness, prayer, and enlightened social action.
