Marcus J. Borg (PhD, Oxford University) returns to Village Church to offer up fresh perspectives to living our Christian faith in contemporary times. The author of more than 10 books, including the best-selling Jesus: A New Vision, Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time andThe Heart of Christianity: How We Can Be Passionate Believers Today (2003), Dr. Borg is Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University.
For highlights from Marcus Borg’s 2003 visit to Village Church, please visit http://www.mvick.org/VS/Marcus%20Borg.htm.
“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.”
