BOOK
The Universal Christ: how a forgotten reality can change everything we see, hope for and believe, Richard Rohr, Random House Audio, 03/05/2019, accessed through Audible.

In this book, Richard Rohr redefines the first and second incarnations of Christ and supports his perspective with scripture and historical information about the development of Christianity. He presents some interesting thoughts about Eastern (Byzantine) Christianity and how it differs from the Western Church as well as discussing the relationship between Buddhism and Christianity. He states that Western Christianity has a lot to gain from learning more about and from both the Byzantine Church and Buddhism. In this context, he enters into an in-depth look at the role of contemplation in a rich spiritual life.

I read this book as part of a study group. This means, because my short-term memory is showing its age, that I read each chapter 3 times as I went along, taking notes and writing my own commentary. This was such an interesting process! I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to challenge their perspective and discover how it can make you grow. I loved this book and have two more, lent me by a friend, waiting to be read.
