When Jesus talked about the Kingdom of God, he was talking about an utterly different way of relating to human society as we know it. He was talking about a new world order, a term recently on the lips of politicians. What a false sense of the term they have used, contends popular preacher and author Richard Rohr. "I doubt that any major political leader would align a new world order in terms of cooperation, trust, service and redemptive suffering," writes Rohr. "For all the talk of a new world order, it's simply the old world order. The 'New World Order,' or the 'Reign of God,' is the heart of the New Testament."
RICHARD ROHR is founding director of the Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He considers the proclamation of the gospel to be his primary call, and some related themes he addresses include eco-spirituality, Scripture as liberation, non-dual thought, the integration of action and contemplation, peace and justice issues, and male spirituality. Author of numerous books, including Things Hidden: Scripture as Spirituality, Wondrous Encounters: Scripture for Lent, and Preparing for Christmas With Richard Rohr: Daily Meditations for Advent, he gives retreats and lectures internationally. He is a regular contributing writer for Sojourners and Tikkun magazines.
