Description

In Speaking Christian, acclaimed Bible scholar Marcus Borg, author of Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, argues that the very language Christians use has become dangerously distilled, distorted, and disconnected from the beliefs which once underpinned it.

Stating a case that will resonate with readers of N. T. Wright's Simply Christian, Borg calls for a radical change to the language we use to invoke our beliefs--the only remedy that will allow the Church's words to once again ring with truth, power, and hope.
