How to have faith--or even think about God--without having to stifle modern rational thought is one of the most vital challenges facing many of us today. Marcus J. Borg, author of the bestselling Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, traces his personal spiritual journey to the discovery of an authentic yet fully contemporary understanding of God. In a compelling, readable way, he leads us from the distant, authoritarian God of our childhood to an equally powerful, dynamic adult image of God--"the beyond in our midst," the life spirit that is within us and all around us--that reconciles faith with science, history, critical thinking, and religious pluralism.… (mer)

This book is hard to describe. The man who wrote it was a religious scholar, so he knows of which he speaks. For people who have no questions about their faith or religion in general, then I'd say give this book a pass because it WILL upset you. But if you're like me and have a LOT of questions, then this book is well worth a read. I found the subject truly fascinating. It explained some of my many questions and gave me a lot to think about. It's not a fast read nor should it be. You have to think about it and sometimes go back and re-read sections to make sure you understand. Even with having to do that, I'd highly recommend this book for anyone who possesses a quest for knowledge. ( )

I read this book twenty plus years after its first publication, but it seems to me many of the ideas Borg discusses were being discussed, at least in Roman Catholic circles, in the 1970s. His book certainly has value but was not the revelation some people have found it to be. He outlines the common image of God as a white male monarch and briefly considers what's wrong with such an image in modern societies as opposed to the agrarian, monarchic and patriarchal societies of the time that concept of God as a king was first written down. He then offers alternative images of God as loving, compassionate, etc. All good as far as it goes but it doesn't go far enough anymore. ( )

Almost Spongian in his idea of God and Christ, but then they're both working with some of the same source material (Paul Tillich, for one). ( )

Borg presents a God all would hope for (which is why we never knew him), but his vision simply wishes the terrible, vindictive, jealous, genocidal, and even infantile God portrayed in many books of the Old Testament away. Like all apologists, his vision of Jehovah does not include the blood thirsty tribal deity of the 1st 5 books of the Bible. There is much to wish for in Borg's portrayal, but one cannot take all of the good and positive traits of something and say the other traits are simply the wishes of a small tribe for a warrior God who destroys all of its enemies. If you do this, you are not following an existing religion created by an individual (Jesus) who believed that God actually acted as described in the Old Testament. You are creating a new religion and a new God. I have no problem with this, my only stand is that, if one does this, one must admit that their religion is a new one built on pieces of the old religion. ( )
