The Spiritual Formation Group has chosen their next book to discuss which will be: Marcus J. Borg, Reading the Bible Again for the First Time: Taking the Bible Seriously but Not Literally.
The Marcus Borg Foundation describes the book this way: One of the vital challenges facing thoughtful people today is how to read the Bible faithfully without abandoning our sense of truth and history. Reading the Bible Again for the First Time provides a much-needed solution to the problem of how to have a fully authentic yet contemporary understanding of the scriptures. Many mistakenly believe there are no choices other than fundamentalism or simply rejecting the Bible as something that can bring meaning to our lives. Answering this modern dilemma, acclaimed author Marcus Borg reveals how it is possible to reconcile the Bible with both a scienti?c and critical way of thinking and our deepest spiritual needs, leading to a contemporary yet grounded experience of the sacred texts. The book is available in Darvill’s.
