9780819219077: God at 2000

"How do your personal experiences, your study, and your faith perspective influence the way you, as an individual, see God?" That was the question posed to these seven renowned authors and scholars. Representing a wide variety of faith perspectives, Karen Armstrong, Diana Eck, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Joan Chittister, Laurence Kushner, Desmond Tutu, and Marcus Borg explore the ways in which their life experiences have shaped their personal understanding of God.

Originally given as lectures at the God at 2000 conference in February 2000, each presentation has been rewritten for a reading audience. Conversation starters, based on the questions asked at the conference itself, are included, making this an excellent resource for small group study. An introduction written by Marcus Borg provides readers with a frame of reference that will help them explore the issues raised in the book, and become clear about their own personal understanding of God.

About the Author:

Marcus J. Borg is Hundere Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University, lecturer, and author of ten books, including the bestselling Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, and the award-winning The God We Never Knew.

Ross Mackenzie is Director of the Department of Religion at the Chautauqua Institution, Chatauqua, New York. He is also an Episcopal Priest, and was Professor of Church History at Union Theological Seminary in Virginia from 1963-1981.

From Publishers Weekly:

At a February 2000 conference, seven scholars of religion were asked to explain how their "personal experiences... study, and... faith perspective influence" the way that they, as individuals, "see God." This new volume recounts the conference proceedings, offering luminous essays by prolific writer Karen Armstrong, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, rabbi Lawrence Kushner, nun Joan Chittister and others. Chittister puffs ecofeminism and emphasizes the importance of humility in religion. Armstrong reveals that she cannot pray, so scarred was she by "all those years when I tried and failed." Diana Eck, a Methodist who teaches Indian religions at Harvard, takes readers on a delightful tour of three religious houses she visited in one month: Memorial Church in Harvard Yard, a Cambridge mosque, and the Sri Lakshmi Temple in Ashland, Mass. Kushner's trademark storytelling abilities are in evidence as he weaves together tales from the Bible, Tolstoy, various 18th-century rabbis and his own family. The essays do not really seem to answer the question posed to participants; readers learn how they see God but very little about how the contributors' personal experiences shaped their beliefs. The volume would have been strengthened by the inclusion of one or two more conservative religious thinkers to balance out the consistently liberal views of Chittister, Armstrong and others. Still, readers of all religious persuasions will find that they see God differently when they have finished this valuable collection.
