"From one of the world's most influential spiritual thinkers, along-awaited book exploring what it means that Jesus was called "Christ," and how this forgotten truth can transform everything we see, hope for, and believe. In his decades as a globally recognized teacher, Richard Rohr has helped millions realize what is at stake in matters of faith and spirituality. Yet Rohr has never written on the most perennially talked about topic in Christianity: Jesus. Most know who Jesus was, but who was Christ? Is the word simply Jesus's last name? Too often, Rohr writes, our understandings have been limited by culture, religious squabbling, and the human tendency to put ourselves at the center. Drawing on scripture, history, and spiritual practice, Rohr articulates a transformative view of Jesus Christ as a portrait of God's constant, unfolding work in the world. "God loves things by becoming them," he writes, and Jesus's life was meant to declare that humanity has never been separate from God--except by its own negative choice. When we recover this fundamental truth, faith becomes less about proving Jesus was God, and more about learning to recognize the Creator's presence all around us, and in everyone we meet. Thought-provoking, practical, and full of deep hope and vision, The Universal Christ is a landmark book from one of our most beloved spiritual writers, and an invitation to contemplate how God liberates and loves all that is"--… (mehr)

Never has a book so thoroughly reframed the concept of faith and God in my life as ‘The Universal Christ’ did. In elegance and sheer simplicity Richard Rohr encapsulated everything I have been reconstructing in my own life, and offered a hope that there is a better way, a universal application of understanding and love in a Divine Reality that transcends how our modern society has described God. This book offers an ancient and better way of understanding God, and will undoubtedly be with me for many years to come as I walk out my faith journey. ( )

When Christians claim that Jesus of Nazareth was also God, what do we mean? In The Universal Christ, Richard Rohr looks to answer that question, looking at scripture, tradition and experience to reveal the implications of that claim.

I listened to the audiobook twice, back to back, and I will likely read it again. It was and is an important book for my faith, and I hope to not only write a better review of the book, but explore some of the ideas more fully elsewhere.

I am saddened to hear Rohr has received more death threats than ever before with this book, which I have to say just made me want to read it more.

As an overview, Rohr soars among the clouds, looking mostly at the big picture of life and faith and scripture, which means he sometimes makes some big generalizations. He also separates Jesus and Christ in a way that still didn't quite sit right with me. Those were my two gripes, but there was much to chew on and appreciate. And -- any book written late in life by someone like Rohr (who overflows with love and joy for all!) is worth a read. ( )

Richard Rohr is very much a speaker, but his writing has improved over the years and his ideas are always challenging. I will never read "Christ" again in the same way. He has enlarged my thinking, my feeling, my very unconscious. ( )

This is quite a good book. The book intertwines the ideas of who Jesus is with who Christ is.This is beyond who is the Jesus of history, and tries to restores the sense of Christ moving though us in history.Goodness, love, and wholeness are important. Rohr look beyond his Catholic faith and Franciscan formation to take a view that includes Protestant, Anglican, and Eastern Orthodox insights and practice. I am going to recommend my church read this book. ( )

Rohr writes insightfully and with a deep faith drawing on his Franciscan heritage as well as a myriad of mystics down through the centuries and even some modern theologians as well. But while Rohr is a Catholic priest in the Franciscan order this book is by no means only for Catholics. His insights cut across denominational lines and speak to us more abut following Christ than any one practice of religion. The book is easily accessible to the lay reader but is also engaging enough for the theologian or pastor/priest. Calling on the contemplative tradition from which he springs he outlines the deepest understandings of living as a person of faith in the modern world. Yet this is not a book for those who are well versed in mysticism and contemplation but a practical discussion of the depths of the Christian experience - emphasis on experience. We must experience Christ to be able to share the experience of Christ. This is a powerful read for any Christian and for many it could very well change the way they see faith and life and the Christ we all proclaim. ( )
