              The First Paul: Reclaiming the Radical Visionary Behind the Church's Conservative Icon (EPUB ebook)

              By Borg, Marcus J.; Crossan, John Dominic

              "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 impo...rtance to culture and civilization." - Booklist (starred review) John Dominic Crossan and Marcus J. Borg-two of the world's top-selling Christian scholars and the bestselling authors of The Last Week and The First Christmas-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.

              La Ultima Semana: Un Relato Diario de la Ultima Semana de Jesus en Jerusalen (EPUB ebook)

              By Borg, Marcus J.; Crossan, John Dominic

              Los destacados especialistas en Jesus, Marcus J. Borg y John Dominic Crossan, se unen para revelarnos un Jesus radicalmente nuevo y poco conocido. Cuando ambos autores reaccionaron y respondieron preguntas sobre el exitoso filme de Mel Gibson, La Pasion de Jesucristo, descubriero...n que muchos cristianos no tienen claro los detalles de los acontecimientos de la semana que condujo a Jesus a su muerte en la cruz. Usando el evangelio de Marcos como guia, Borg y Crossan presentan un relato dia a dia de la ultima semana de vida de Jesus. Comienzan su historia el Domingo de Ramos con dos entradas triunfales a Jerusalen. La primera entrada, la del gobernador romano Poncio Pilatos que conduce soldados romanos dentro de la ciudad, simboliza la fuerza militar. La segunda anuncia un nuevo tipo de heroe moral que es alabado por la gente mientras va montado sobre un humilde burro. El Jesus presentado por Borg y Crossan es este nuevo heroe moral, un Jesus mas peligroso que el consagrado en las ensenanzas tradicionales de la iglesia. La Ultima Semana pinta a un Jesus que renuncia a su vida para protestar contra el poder sin justicia y para condenar al rico a quien no le importa el pobre. Comprometido con esto, al termino de la semana Jesus marcha hacia el Calvario, ofreciendose como modelo para que otros hagan lo mismo cuando se enfrenten a cuestiones similares. Informados, desafiados e inspirados no solo nos encontramos con el Jesus historico, sino tambien con un nuevo Jesus que nos compromete y nos invita a seguirlo.

              The God We Never Knew: Beyond Dogmatic Religion To A More Authenthic Contemporary Faith
                

              The God We Never Knew: Beyond Dogmatic Religion To A More Authenthic Contemporary Faith (EPUB ebook)

              By Borg, Marcus J.

              How to have faith-or even think about God-without having to stifle modern rational thought is one of the most vital challenges facing many of us today. Marcus J. Borg, author of the bestselling Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, traces his personal spiritual journey to the d...iscovery of an authentic yet fully contemporary understanding of God. In a compelling, readable way, he 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.

              By Borg, Marcus J.

              "We all know that Marcus Borg is a gifted teacher, biblical scholar, and writer of nonfiction, but it turns out that he's a master storyteller, too." - Brian D. McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity Bestselling author, Bible scholar, and theologian Marcus Borg (Meeting Je...sus Again for the First Time, The Heart of Christianity, The Last Week) uses his core teachings on faith and the Bible to demonstrate their transformative power and potential in Putting Away Childish Things: the moving, inspirational story of a college professor, her students, and a crisis of faith.

              Evolution of the Word: The New Testament in the Order the Books Were Written (EPUB ebook)

              By Borg, Marcus J.

              By presenting the New Testament books in the order they were written, bestselling Bible scholar Marcus Borg reveals how spiritually and politically radical the early Jesus movement began and how it slowly became domesticated. Evolution of the Word is an incredible value: not only... are readers getting a deeply insightful new book from the author of Speaking Christian and Jesus, but also the full-text of the New Testament-and one of the only Bibles organized in chronological order and including explanatory annotations that give readers a more informed understanding of the Scripture that is so close to their hearts and lives.

              Christianity, like any religion, is understood and defined by its language. Yet today, much of Christian language is poorly understood or distorted, leading to a religion that is quickly being stripped of its true meaning. With his clear, accessible style that his fans have come ...to love, Marcus Borg illustrates how modern Christianity has lost its transforming power: through a literalism that has impoverished the meaning of the Bible, and a misunderstanding of Christianity's core ideas. Borg offers a way to redeem Christian language from these distortions by reading Scripture through a historical-metaphorical lens. This allows us to see Christian language in its ancient historical context and interpret the biblical text in a way that focuses on its religious purpose, therby conveying the words richer and more powerful meaning. Speaking Christian explores such words and phrase as salvation, redemption, grace, eternal life and the Lord's Supper. Through this exercise we discover how the Biblical text can continue to be both persuasive and powerful, providing life-changing words for the 21st century --

              Most Christians are familiar with the story told in Marks gospel from the fishermen leaving their nets, to the miracle of the loaves and fishes, to the political rumblings and the crucifixion. But no one knows who Mark really was or why this gospel was written or why its charged ...with such a sense of immediacy. For noted Jesus scholar Marcus Borg, reading Mark is like meeting Jesus again for the first time. Individual readers and parish study groups will learn about this earliest gospel from the perspective of an important Anglican theologian.
