The Heart of Christianity PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Heart of Christianity free pdf In The Heart of Christianity, world-renowned Jesus scholar and author of the bestseller Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time argues that the essential ingredients of a Christian life-faith, being born again, the kingdom of God, the gospel of love-are as vitally important today as they have always been, even during this time of conflict and change in the church. Borg wants to show us, as today's thinking Christians, how to discover a life of faith by reconceptualizing familiar beliefs. Being born again, for example, has nothing to do with fundamentalism, but is a call to radical personal transformation. Talking about the kingdom of God does not mean that you are fighting against secularism, but that you have committed your life to the divine values of justice and love. And living the true Christian way is essentially about opening one's heart-to God, and to others. Above all else, Borg believes with passion and conviction that living the Christian life still makes sense.
