Galley Giveaway: Marcus Borg's EVOLUTION OF THE WORD

ALL OF OUR GALLEYS HAVE BEEN GIVEN AWAY! Please visit us again for new giveaways.

With Evolution of the Word Professor Marcus Borg, distinguished theologian and author of bestsellers such as Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, The Heart of Christianity, and Speaking Christian, reintroduces the New Testament books. By organizing the New Testament in the order they were written—rather than the official sequence of the church Bibles, Borg challenges your students to read the bible in an altogether new way.

With introductions and sidebars to each of the books of the Bible, as well as a survey of what we can know about the oral accounts of Jesus that were passed around before the first book was written, Borg reveals how a radical and primative apocalyptic Jewish faith slowly became more comfortable with the world, less Jewish, and more preoccupied with maintaining power and control. Professor Borg’s Evolution of the Word promises to change how students think about this historic work, helping them to  rediscover documents they thought they knew well by seeing them in an all-new setting.
