 Marcus Borg is a key force
in the emerging ‘new paradigm’ of Christian faith.

[The Heart of Christianity] will be a great gift to those who have so much to unlearn in and about the church. It will, moreover, nourish new Christians who are moving beyond popular caricatures of faith, inviting them to the real stuff.
Borg is ‘on a roll,’ and here ‘the roll’ takes on additional momentum,
a happy outcome for us all.”
