Ann Phelps and Debo Dykes revisit an archived Marcus Borg lecture to dissect Borg's ideas on how one can practice Christianity but reject literalism and beliefs that don't fit a modern understanding of justice.
Can some parts of the Bible be "flat-out wrong?" Does this create anxiety or relief when you hear it? For Marcus Borg, letting go of literalism opens a larger world of metaphor that ultimately leads to a more fulfilling personal faith.
This episode of the podcast reacquaints listeners with Marcus Borg, who passed away in 2015. Borg left a legacy of historical Jesus scholarship and a lasting call to experience Christianity as a call to create justice in today's world.
