Synopsis: On the occasion of his seventieth birthday, the renowned Marcus J. Borg shares his convictions about Christianity and America, contending that they are both at their best when they focus on hope and transformation, and shares his thoughts on how American Christians can return to what matters most.Reflecting on what matters most, both for the church and for Americans, leading biblical scholar and premiere teacher for Protestant churches, Marcus Borg surveys the most significant conversations and personalities that shaped his life and presents his convictions about the faith and its role in the twenty-first century.Meditating on what makes us feel at home, he calls all American Christians to reject divisiveness and exclusivity and create communities that celebrate joy, possibility, and renewal. Throughout, he reflects on what matters most, bringing to earth the kingdom of God Jesus talked about and transforming our relationships with one another.
From the Back Cover:
“Imagine that Christianity is about loving God. Imagine that it’s not about the self and its concerns, about ‘what’s in it for me,’ whether that be a blessed afterlife or prosperity in this life. Imagine that loving God is about being attentive to the one in whom we live and move and have our being. Imagine that it is about becoming more and more deeply centered in God. Imagine that it is about loving what God loves. How would that change our lives?”—from Convictions
Marcus J. Borg, preeminent theologian and Bible scholar, reflects on his life and how he developed his most bedrock convictions—and why they matter. The result is a manifesto for all progressive Christians who seek the best path for following Jesus today.
A Manifesto for Progressive Christians“Conveys an overall message that is both simple and urgently needed: Change is a good and natural part of Christian life.”—Read the Spirit
