Publisher's Description

Showcasing some of his most enduring and insightful writings, including many previously unpublished works, a concise and illuminating introduction to Marcus J. Borg, the late spokesman for progressive Christianity and one of the most revered and influential theologians of our time.

In his acclaimed books, including classics such as Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, The Heart of Christianity, Speaking Christian, and Convictions, Marcus J. Borg helped shape an enlightened modernist view of Christianity. A leading scholar of the historical Jesus acclaimed for his ability to speak about Christianity in the context of contemporary society, Borg offered profound wisdom and inspiration—a new way of seeing and living the Christian life—for believers, students, and lay readers. Ultimately, he taught us that by developing a deeper understanding of Jesus and the New Testament, we can discover a more authentic way of being. Yet Borg himself was always conscious of a greater truth beyond what he could explain: the wonder of God.

Now, two years after the liberal theologian’s death, comes The Days of Awe and Wonder, a selection of his writing, including many never before published works, that explores the Christian faith and what it means to be a Christian in the twenty-first century. Provocative and uplifting, this anthology illuminates Borg’s explorations of the miraculous and wonderful, his understanding of conviction and fulfillment, and his contention that we must keep an open mind and question assumptions and certainties in all our religious journeys.

Author Bio

Marcus J. Borg (1942–2015) was a pioneering author and teacher whom the New York Times described as "a leading figure in his generation of Jesus scholars." He was the Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University and canon theologian at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Portland, and he appeared on NBC's The Today Show and Dateline, ABC's World News, and NPR's Fresh Air. His books have sold over a million copies, including the bestselling Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, Reading the Bible Again for the First Time, Jesus, The Heart of Christianity, Evolution of the Word, Speaking Christian, and Convictions.

Editorial Reviews

“Profound, challenging, and engrossing,”
“He writes honestly and clearly, defining as he goes, always educating. He does not shy from laying out controversies among contemporary Christians [but] he closes with wonder.”
“You must buy this book. You will be encouraged to, as Marcus says, “go beyond your mind,” to the space of awe and wonder, to the place where our hearts and minds are infused with the Spirit of God, and we are transformed to transform the world. ”
“A fine memorial collection [covering] Borg’s characteristic themes [as well as] such corollary topics as the New Atheism, the essence of Christianity, the wisdom in other religions, and how to hear the voice of God.”
“Marcus Borg is a key force in the emerging ‘new paradigm’ of Christian faith.”
“Writing with a simplicity that never becomes simplistic, Borg manages to convey the essence of Christianity in a way that does justice to those who do not share his views and will greatly enrich the understanding of those who do.”
“In every generation there are a handful of writers of whom it can be said, ‘Read everything they write.’ Marcus Borg is one of these today.”
“Marcus Borg brings expert knowledge, insight, and warmth to this re-visiting of Christianity’s heart and soul. All Christians and those interested in Christianity from a distance should read all his books.”
“Marcus Borg shows how Christians can explore contemporary scholarship as a way toward a far more dynamic and meaningful faith.”
“Borg has done a great service for all of us in drawing upon contemporary research to present a fresh and imaginative picture of Jesus that has profound implications for contemporary faith.”
“In these pages, Borg’s deepest wisdom shines through—framed in the best of biblical scholarship, Jesus shines forth as a ‘spirit person’ who invites all people into lives of awe and wonder for the sake of the world. Read and meet Jesus again and fall into God’s all-encompassing love.”
“In Days of Awe and Wonder, we get to the heart of why Marcus Borg matters. Borg cracks open Christianity for many of us who felt trapped outside its impenetrable walls of dubious dogmas. With skill and care, he invites us to believe again.”
