Description: Marcus Borg's fastest selling book ever, now in paperback. An engaging and inspiring guide to Christian living, this shows that the essential ingredients of a Christian life-faith, being born again, the kingdom of God, the gospel of love-make vital sense today. Borg reveals that, when properly understood, the vital elements of Christian faith are more compelling than ever. Borg offers a practical guide to thinking about God, Jesus, the Bible, faith and Christian practice. He shows how faith in God and Jesus has never really been about believing certain propositions but rather about a dynamic relationship. He shows that being born again is at the centre of Christian life and that the kingdom of God is a matter of transforming society into real world values of justice and love. And that the Christian life is essentially about opening one's heart-to God and to others.
