Good Books To Read – Reading the Bible Again for the First Time

Reading the Bible Again for the First Time – Marcus J. Borg

Borg looks at both Old and New Testament texts with a “scientific” eye as he tries to make the Biblical narrative accessible to the modern-day, western reader.  Some might take the position that Borg goes too far in deconstructing the text, perhaps paying more attention to the world in front of the text than to the world behind it but, nonetheless, Borg’s worldview is one shared by many in the US today and so his book is well worth reading.  In fact, Table Talk, the theology discussion group of The University Church read and discussed this very book back in the summer of 2007.  – Review by Julian
