Modern Christians are steeped in a language so distorted that it has become a stumbling block to the religion says internationally renowned Bible scholar Marcus J Borg Borg argues that Christianity s important words and the sacred texts and stories in which those words are embedded have been narrowed by a modern framework for the faith that emphasizes sin forgiveness Jesus dying for our sins and the afterlife Here Borg employs the historical metaphorical method for understanding Christian language that can restore for us these words of power and transformation For example br br i Redemption i now narrowly understood as Jesus saving us from sins so we can go to heaven but in the Bible it refers to being set free from slavery br br i Savior i now refers to Jesus as the one who saves us from our sins but in the Bible it has a rich and wonderful variety of meanings having nothing to do with the afterlife br br i Sacrifice i now refers to Jesus s death on the cross as payment for our sins but in the Bible it is never about substitutionary payment for sin br br In i Speaking Christian i Borg delivers a language for twenty first century Christians that grounds the faith in its deep and rich original roots and allows it once again to transform our lives, In em The Heart of Christianity em world renowned Jesus scholar and author of the bestseller em Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time em argues that the essential ingredients of a Christian life faith being born again the kingdom of God the gospel of love are as vitally important today as they have always been even during this time of conflict and change in the church br br Borg wants to show us as today s thinking Christians how to discover a life of faith by reconceptualizing familiar beliefs Being born again for example has nothing to do with fundamentalism but is a call to radical personal transformation Talking about the kingdom of God does not mean that you are fighting against secularism but that you have committed your life to the divine values of justice and love And living the true Christian way is essentially about opening one s heart to God and to others Above all else Borg believes with passion and conviction that living the Christian life still makes sense, Borg and Crossan reveal a figure who besides being neither anti Semitic anti sex nor misogynist stresses social and political equality among Christians and between them and others A refreshing and heartening exculpation of a still routinely maligned figure of the first importance to culture and civilization em Booklist em starred review br br John Dominic Crossan and Marcus J Borg two of the world s top selling Christian scholars and the bestselling authors of em The Last Week em and em The First Christmas em once again shake up the status quo by arguing that the message of the apostle Paul considered by many to be the second most important figure in Christianity has been domesticated by the church Borg and Crossan turn the common perception of Paul on its head revealing him as a radical follower of Jesus whose core message is still relevant today, Top Jesus scholars Marcus J Borg amp John Dominic Crossan reveal a radical amp little known Jesus As both authors reacted to amp responded to questions about Mel Gibson s blockbuster em The Passion of the Christ em they discovered that many Christians are unclear on the details of events during the week leading up to Jesus crucifixion Using Mark s gospel as a guide they present a day by day account of Jesus final week of life They begin their story on Palm Sunday with two triumphal entries into Jerusalem The st entry that of Roman governor Pontius Pilate leading Roman soldiers into the city symbolized military strength The nd heralded a new kind of moral hero who was praised by the people as he rode in on a humble donkey The Jesus introduced herein is this new moral hero a more dangerous Jesus than the one enshrined in the church s traditional teachings em The Last Week em depicts Jesus giving up his life to protest power without justice amp to condemn the rich who lack concern for the poor In this vein at the end of the week Jesus marches up Calvary offering himself as a model for others to do the same when confronted by similar issues Informed challenged amp inspired we not only meet the historical Jesus but meet a new Jesus who engages amp invites us to follow him
