I will likely be recommending The Universal Christ by Richard Rohr for a long time to anyone looking to discover or rediscover Christianity in a way that actually makes sense and can provide lasting value.
This is Rohr's latest book in which he explores what it means that Jesus was called Christ, and how things got pretty distorted over the last 2,000 years due to limited cultures, religious debate and our tendency to put ourselves at the center of everything.
Using scripture, history and spiritual practices, Rohr talks about how to understand God and rediscover the fundamental truths of life and faith - all on the basis of not trying to prove Jesus was God, but rather about learning to recognize the divine presence all around us, in everything. This was such an eye opening read.
Literacy is a prerequisite for freedom. Read deeply. Read what matters. Build a reading list. Don't take literacy for granted.
