“Speaking Christian” – Book Study
Speaking Christian: Why Christian Words Have Lost Their Meaning and Power and How They Can Be Restored, by Marcus Borg
Sundays, January 10, 17 and 24 – 1:00 pm
On three Epiphanytide Sundays, we’ll meet following the 11:15 am Holy Eucharist to discuss Speaking Christian: Why Christian Words Have Lost Their Meaning and Power and How They Can Be Restored, by acclaimed Bible scholar Marcus Borg.
The publishers of Speaking Christian explain that in the book Borg “argues that the very language Christians use has become dangerously distilled, distorted, and disconnected from the beliefs which once underpinned it,” and that “[he] calls for a radical change to the language we use to invoke our beliefs—the only remedy that will allow the Church’s words to once again ring with truth, power, and hope.”
Let’s start the year by diving into matters of faith and life together!
