Marcus J. Borg is Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University. His writings have given progressive thinking Christians the tools to rebuild their Christian faith with integrity and relevance for the twenty first century. Borg brings a fresh understanding of Jesus, an intelligent reading afresh of the scriptures and an exciting journey into the mystery of God.

Walter Wink writes: ‘In every generation there is a handful of writers of whom it can be said, Read everything they write. Marcus Borg is one of these today’
