In language that Paul might use if he were preaching and writing today, Rohr presents Paul's all-embracing vision and invites us to enter into the mystery of Christ and be transformed. Rohr breaks new ground by applying up-to-date theories of our universe, integrating them with Paul's revolutionary thinking about sin, saints and spirituality.

Deep and complex, Paul may seem to be full of inconsistencies--arrogant but also humble, a fervent believer but a probing, critical thinker, a mystic but also a missionary community builder.

Rohr admits the difficulties in understanding the short excerpts of Paul's letters read at Sunday Mass. He analyzes the letters and explains the great themes. He challenges our usual understandings and invites us to imitate Paul and enter into the mystery in organic solidarity with the Risen Christ. Rohr sees us as partaking in the incredible transformation of the whole cosmos that struggles with the pattern of descent and ascent that is revealed and affirmed in Jesus.
