Exressing 21st century Christianity
on 14 March 2013
Provides confirmation of Christianity for the 21st century without the jargon of earlier generations. I would recommend it to those moving from the anachronistic literal interpretation of texts and seeking a clear expression of the more than literal meaning of the faith. It more than met my expectations as it was not only a good read but will be a useful resource to refer to when needing to refresh and clarify my thinking on particular biblical words and terms. It will also be useful for those who draw their understanding of Christianity from Dawkins or the secular press to enable them to understand that there are those unholding the essence of Christianity who do not now and have not for the past half century held literal interpretations left over from the Victorian era. Borg brings 21st century scholarship and applies it to the ordinary reader's understanding for the 21st century.
