Beyond Dogmatic Religion to a More Authentic Contemporary Faith.
Answering the vital contemporary theological and spiritual questions that fall outside the scope of such popular historical bestsellers as 'A History Of God' and 'God: A Biogrpahy', Marcus Borg leads to a fresh, contemporary, yet deeply grounded experience of God in our minds - and hearts.
How to have faith - even to think about God - without having to stifle modern rational thought is one of the most vital challenges facing many of us today. Bestselling author Marcus Borg traces his personal spiritual journey to the discover of an authentic yet fully contemporary understanding of God.
In a compelling and readable way, Borg leads us from the distant, authoritarian God of our childhood to an equally powerful, dynamic adult image of God - "the beyond in our midst," the life spirit that is within us and all around us - that reconciles faith with science, history, critical thinking, and religious pluralism.
