BOOK: "Speaking Christian" by Marcus Borg

Eleanor McCloskey, CND

Speaking Christian by Marcus Borg (2011, also 2012, also 2014; Harper One Paperback). While not a new book, this little volume offers more than a clarification of words and their meaning. Marcus has a way of leading his readers away from literalism and a conviction of inerrancy in scripture to an inviting openness to explore what words “may have meant” (we can’t be sure) in a specific time and context, and what they may mean now, in our time. Over the centuries, interpretations and additions have definitely found their way into our Christian message. Some have brought clutter rather than clarity, along with negativity and guilt power. Although mostly attracted to new books and new insights, as a chronic wordsmith, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
