Last Texts From Jesus

by Richard Rohr (Author)

Taking its title from one of the pieces included, this is a book of between 30 and 40 poems in which the poet seeks to convey the reality of a Jesus not-gone, or only-just-missed or about-to-arrive, but a God truly with-us: the contemporary Emanuel. The poems have been received variously with laughter, tears and many thanks from big audiences.
