Marcus Borg, Ph.D.

Marcus Borg, Ph.D. NEW!
The work of Marcus Borg, D.Phil., who passed away in 2015, is still internationally regarded in both academic and church circles as among the finest New Testament scholarship.

He wrote 19 books, including best-sellers Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time, Reading the Bible Again for the First Time, The Heart of Christianity and Jesus: Uncovering the Life, Teachings and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary. Described by The New York Times as “a leading figure in his generation of Jesus scholars,” he served as national chair of the Historical Jesus Section of the Society of Biblical Literature and co-chair of its International New Testament Program Committee, and he was also a president of the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars.

A fellow of the Jesus Seminar, Borg held a doctor's degree in theology from Oxford University. He was Hundere Chair of Religion and Culture in the philosophy department at Oregon State University until his retirement in 2007.

Walter Wink, the late author and professor at Auburn Theological Seminary, wrote of Borg: “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: a writer of rare lucidity, original scholarly insights, profound spirituality, and the universal capacity to connect it all to life in the present.”
