5.0 out of 5 stars Presents the Christian message in an original and compelling way, 16 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The book examines traditional Christian terminology and challenges 'accepted' meanings - it is similar to much of Borg's writing in its thesis that the Christian life is not primarily about believing the literal truth of a set of propositional statments, but about entering into a relationship with that to which the Christian tradition points - God, the risen living Christ, and the Spirit. To believe in God is to trust in and belove God. Borg offers an attractive and compelling theology for those who struggle with seeing Chrstianity as about a requirement and effort of the intellect to believe the factual truth of a set of statements that one may find difficult to embrace; he may appeal less to those who see his message as eroding central 'truths'.

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Memorials: June Benn (ed), 1 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Memorials (Hardcover)
An excellent anthology, covering religious and non-religious treatment of death in prose and poetry. The book provides a huge range of material, from classical biblical to modern poetry and is an invaluable resource for readings for funeral services. Particularly useful for the agnostic or atheist, but much to muse on for those of all persuasions.
