9780281073115: Convictions: A Manifesto for Progressive Christians

Marcus Borg sets out his deepest convictions about God and the Bible, and reveals how a series of mystical experiences helped to make him a world champion of progressive, inclusive and politically engaged Christianity. Borg is an internationally respected biblical scholar whose books have sold over a million copies in English alone. Each chapter explores a different aspect of the faith, laced with moving stories of the author's intellectual and spiritual development. 'The story of my life and my Christian journey is about memories, conversions, and convictions. Memories of what I absorbed growing up. Conversions: major changes in my understanding of the Bible and God and Jesus and what it means to be Christian. Convictions: the affirmations that have flowed from those changes. Three kinds of conversions and convictions have shaped my life: intellectual, political and religious ...' Marcus Borg

About the Author:

Marcus J. Borg is Canon Theologian at Trinity Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, and Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture, Emeritus, at Oregon State University. His previous books include Speaking Christian (2011), Jesus (2011) and Meeting Jesus in Mark (2011), all published by SPCK.

Review:

'In every generation there is a handful of writers of whom it can be said, "Read everything they write." Marcus Borg is one of these today.' Walter Wink Many know Marcus Borg as a brilliant scholar, which he is. But he has a pastoral side as well. I've stood with Marcus after his lectures and watched as person after person comes up to say, "I lost my faith, but your books have helped me get it back," or "I wouldn't be in the church today if I hadn't come across your books," or "Your work has helped me stay a Christian."' Brian McLaren
