A LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER, ROBERT ELLSBERG - March 2018
How would you describe the essential message of God? Having done that, how would you say that message relates to the mission of your own life?
For Franciscan author and speaker Richard Rohr, the answer is “so simple that it’s hard to teach.” God is love (1 Jn 4:8), as he reminds us, and it follows that his entire life has been a matter of knowing, believing, and living that reality, and trying to help others do the same. That is the central theme of Richard Rohr: Essential Teachings on Love, a new anthology in our Modern Spiritual Master Series, brilliantly edited by his colleagues Joelle Chase and Judy Traeger. As they summarize Rohr’s message in their introduction, “God’s love in us is seeking to love and be loved and to bring healing and wholeness to a suffering world.”
