Whenever anyone asks if there is one book to read that encapsulates the vision of the Christian faith that I teach and preach I direct them to Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time by Marcus Borg. Borg is a “Jesus Seminar Fellow” and professor at Oregon State University. His writings blend a commitment to serious historical research and a sense of the spiritual side of life.
Borg will be lecturing at Portland’s Trinity Episcopal Church on Friday, February 16th from 7:30pm – 9pm and Saturday, February 17th from 9am – 3pm. The evening lecture is $15 and the Saturday workshop costs $50. Click here for registration information.
Oregon is fortunate to have one of America’s leading Biblical scholars teaching in our university system. I hope to attend the Friday night event.
