Marcus Borg sets out his deepest convictions about God and the Bible, and reveals how a series of mystical experiences helped to make him a world champion of progressive, inclusive and politically engaged Christianity. Borg is an internationally respected biblical scholar whose books have sold over a million copies in English alone.
