Spirit, Culture, and The Life of Discipleship.
In this book, Borg presents a portrait of what Jesus was like as a figure of history before his death. It shows what the historical Jesus was like, what he taught, and what his mission was about. Jesus' life was a testimony to the reality of Spirit, but it is a reality poorly understood and often discounted in the modern world. With an account of Jesus based on contemporary spirituality, Borg has written this book for accessibility to the general reader. Focusing on spirit and culture, he looks at the obvious and helps us to see it as if for the first time.
