'You are about to set out on a great adventure,' Richard Rohr told his original listeners when 'The Great Themes of Scripture' talks were recorded for St Anthony Messenger Press in 1973. 'Today the Lord will give you something new. All you have to do is come before the Lord expecting and wanting something more than you already have.'

Now, more than 100,000 tapes later, these powerful, challenging, inspiring talks are available in print thanks to the professional and sensitive editing of Joseph Martos. Martos, who compares his collaboration with Rohr to that of Rodgers and Hammerstein, says: 'If I would acknowledge that the words are often mine, I must always admit that the music is Richard's.'

This first volume, 'The Great Themes of Scripture: Old Testament', offers newcomers to the Hebrew Scriptures a 'feel' for their overall religious themes. But for all readers this book uniquely sounds the call of the Lord and invites response in a way that will touch lives as deeply as the original talks.
