Meet Abraham, a man caught in a matrix of violence who has the audacity and faith to challenge the very notion of divine violence. Meet Moses, known for leading people on an external journey through the wilderness, but who also models an inner journey toward wholeness. Meet David, who fulfills the classic archetypes of king, warrior, magician, and lover, but also specializes in love, as should we all. And beside them, you'll meet Isaiah, John the Baptist, Peter, Paul, Timothy, John, two Josephs, Elijah, and Jesus.

This classic work of Richard Rohr--in this new edition--shows how he uses biblical scholarship, reading the Bible psychologically, always looking for the inner dynamics of the developing character. The Bible is doing its intended work when it helps us live consciously and creatively, growing toward the light.

Soul Brothers also gives us a window into Richard Rohr's theology. He is not primarily focused on being religiously correct or theologically fastidious. Rather, he shows how good theology leads us to be more fully human.
