Marcus Borg on What It Means to Be Christian

Author and Bible scholar Marcus Borg invites us to join him in revisiting Christianity's most fundamental questions: Who is God? What does salvation mean? What place does Jesus hold in contemporary Christian faith? In Embracing an Adult Faith: Marcus Borg on What It Means to Be Christian, a faith-formation resource, you will enjoy the rare privilege of witnessing Marcus in dialogue with a small, diverse group of adults as they honestly -- and sometimes painfully -- confront the big questions and work together toward authentic answers. Borg helps you to address the fundamental questions that you struggle with as your faith matures. Embracing an Adult Faith can be used as a resource for personal reflection as well as a small group experience.


ABOUT THE SERIES Embracing . . .

Each of the "Embracing" units begins with a five DVD session video, a 10-15 minute presentation, by the personality and Tim Scorer followed by filmed interaction with a diverse small group of adults. The Participant’s Workbook then helps your own local small group “join the conversation.” The participant's book includes all study materials need by participants and those who lead. Each participant will need one copy. The Embracing Series is ideal for adult and young-adult small groups, Christian educators, clergy, chaplains and campus ministries.
