Marcus Borg has always been a great teacher. In his newest book The Evolution of the Word his teaching skills are obvious as he opens the New Testament, not only to its original, historical order, but also to insightful, refreshing and dramatic insights. - --John Shelby Spong, author of Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World
Every church should have a copy of this book to which their people s attention is periodically drawn. --The Good Book Stall
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
, 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.
