In honor of the late Marcus Borg, Contemporary Bible Forum is hosting a 4-week study of his seminal book Reading the Bible Again for the First Time led by Dr. Perry Kea, a professor of Biblical studies at UIndy and colleague of Marcus Borg. Borg was a renowned teacher, author and leading scholar of the historical Jesus,, who in the last two decades has contributed greatly to shaping and reshaping conversations of New Testament and contemporary Christianity. In this book Borg addresses one of the vital challenges facing thoughtful people today: How to read the Bible faithfully without abandoning our sense of truth and history. In answering this modern dilemma, Borg reveals how it is possible to reconcile the Bible with both a scientific and critical way of thinking and our deepest spiritual needs, leading to a contemporary yet grounded experience of Scripture.
