4.0 out of 5 stars A Vision of Hope, 1 Feb. 2004
This review is from: The Heart of Christianity (Hardcover)
In THE HEART OF CHRISTIANITY Marcus Borg describes the challenges facing many people who are trying to remain Christians today. It is no longer possible for great numbers of the followers to believe for instance that the Bible or the creeds are literally or factually true. It is still possible, however, to find much that is true if one views them metaphorically.
Borg explains why he chooses to be a Christian and he makes several practical suggestions on such topics as worship and meditation based on a metaphorical, historical and sacramental approach to Christianity.
For me Borg is one of the most inspiring writers associated with the Jesus Seminar. This is especially true because of his ability to take the reader beyond the spiritually dry places one may find after deciding that Christianity no longer makes much sense.

For me this book is a gentle landing into the secular. I thought it would take me back to a religious life but it hasn't and I am thankful for that. The book could be a soft landing for ex evangelicals as they can no longer accept such evil as god sending all unbelivers to hell for ever ( making god the devil!). Most of us should be able to use the good from our christian traditions without be tied up with the doctrinal barbarity of much montheistic thinking
