Was Jesus born of a virgin? Did he know he was the Messiah? Was he bodily resurrected from the dead? Did he intentionally die to redeem humankind? Was Jesus God? Two leading Jesus scholars with widely divergent views go right to the heart of these questions and others, presenting the opposing visions of Jesus that shape our faith today.
Marcus J. Borg is canon theologian at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, Oregon, and was Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University. Described by the New York Times as "a leading figure in his generation of Jesus scholars," he has appeared on NBC's The Today Show and Dateline, ABC's World News, and NPR's Fresh Air. He is the author of the bestselling books Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, The Heart of Christianity, Reading the Bible Again for the First Time, The God We Never Knew, Jesus, Speaking Christian, and The Evolution of the Word. His blog appears on the Progressive Christian Channel of Patheos.com.
N. T. Wright is the former bishop of Durham in the Church of England and one of the world's leading Bible scholars. He is now severing as the Chair of New Testament and Early Christianity at the School of Divinity at the University of St. Andrews; he has been featured on ABC News, Dateline, The Colbert Report, and Fresh Air. Wright is the award-winning author of The Case for the Psalms, How God Became King, Simply Jesus, After You Believe, Surprised by Hope, Simply Christian, Scripture and the Authority of God, and The Meaning of Jesus (coauthored with Marcus Borg), as well as translator for The Kingdom New Testament.
Marilyn Henry4 Stars Out Of 5November 25, 2009Marilyn HenryHave enjoyed reading the opinions of both authors - seeing where they agree and disagree. I must admit I find Wright a bit harder to understand - some of his sentence structure is lengthy and convoluted requiring rereading for comprehension. Sometimes I wish Wright would just clearly state his opinion rather than seeming to hide it in "the facts". All in all, both authors present much food for thought. I would recommend the book. In my opinion, it was well worth the money.
Anne Hunt5 Stars Out Of 5October 13, 2008Anne HuntI really enjoyed the repartee between these two esteemed theologians. I learned more from the academic views of N.T. Wright and I found Marcus Borg's thesis rather redundant throughout. I highly recommend this book for all interested christians who are seeking more of a background of our faith and for non believers an interesting exchange of ideas.
