Miracles, Signs and Wonders

Miracles, Signs and Wonders

September 21, 2019

Richard Rohr responds to listeners questions on some of the most pressing themes of his book, The Universal Christ. In conversation with Paul Swanson and Brie Stoner, Richard responds to listener questions on the relationship between science and theology as well as miracles, signs and wonders. For example: 

  • In your book you talk about Christ being "materiality" itself beginning with the Big Bang. This begs the question: what is the difference in the universe and Christ? Are they synonyms? 
  • How should I reconcile the miracles of Jesus described in the Gospels? Should I view them in a metaphorical way or in a literal way?
