9780062082107: Evolution of the Word: The New Testament in the Order the Books Were Written

Everyone knows the New Testament begins with the Gospel of Matthew, but how many people know it was actually one of the later books to be written it was not even the first Gospel! By re-ordering the New Testament books in the sequence of when they were written, Borg provides a wonderful tutorial on how the core ideas of Christianity took shape and developed over time. With introductions and sidebars to each of the books of the Bible, as well the oral history of what Jesus said before it was written down, Borg reveals how what began as a radical Jewish faith transformed itself into Christianity. From Paul s authentic letters and the first dramatic telling of Jesus story in Mark, we see how an antiimperial movement started a religious revolution. But we also witness how the next generation of writers slowly began to erode the movement s radicalism. Readers will rediscover documents they thought they knew well by seeing them in an all-new setting. Borg s Evolution of the Word promises to change how we think about this historic work.

Review:

Marcus Borg has always been a great teacher. In his newest book The Evolution of the Word his teaching skills are obvious as he opens the New Testament, not only to its original, historical order, but also to insightful, refreshing and dramatic insights. - --John Shelby Spong, author of Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World

Every church should have a copy of this book to which their people s attention is periodically drawn. --The Good Book Stall
