Publisher's Summary

On the occasion of his 70th birthday, the renowned Marcus J. Borg shares his "convictions" about Christianity and America, contending that they are both at their best when they focus on hope and transformation, and shares his thoughts on how American Christians can return to what matters most.
Reflecting on what matters most, both for the church and for Americans, leading biblical scholar and premiere teacher for Protestant churches Marcus Borg surveys the most significant conversations and personalities that shaped his life, and presents his convictions about the faith and its role in the 21st century.
Meditating on what makes us feel at home, he calls all American Christians to reject divisiveness and exclusivity and create communities that celebrate joy, possibility, and renewal. Throughout, he reflects on what matters most, bringing to Earth the kingdom of God Jesus talked about and transforming our relationships with one another.

Rehashing of Borg's progressive perspective

I really have profited from Marcus Borg's work over the years. His earlier work had plenty of verve and vivacity. I really wanted to like this book as he reflected on some of the theological themes and issues that shaped his life.

However ... in the past years I have thought Borg is simply rehashing ideas, concepts and issues that he has treated well in the past. I really wanted to like this book, but in the end found it a little disappointing, as he didn't break any new ground.

The reader was fine, but unmemorable and often s/he can really lift a book from the page. Not this time though.

Thought provoking

I was not familiar with the Author until taking on this reading with a Sunday School class. I found the opening and closing of the book the more interesting of the content. The controversial suggestions in between were an exercise in contemplation.

Borg shares insights from a lifetime of Pershing truth; a rare and insightful gift! This is a book for every seeker of what it means to be properly Christian.
