Scholarly and readable introduction to major Christian words., 5 Jun. 2013
Borg writes well and aims to rediscover the basic meanings of some of the key words of the Christian faith. He does it very well and prompted a good many plaudits from me, anyway. Not that I always agreed with him (notably in his treatment of "righteous" and "righteousness." But this book is instructive and valuable in attempting to move back to original meanings. most of the time it prompts in the reader a heartfelt "thank goodness for that."
Very much worth reading - and keeping on the bookshelf.
