Meeting Jesus Again for the First TimeMeeting Jesus Again for the First Time by Marcus J. Borg

Total Reading Time: 1.75 hours

Review: Part lesson on the historical Jesus & part lesson on how accepting a different image of Jesus than the one taken literally from the Bible can help move “beyond believing in God to being in a relationship to God.” And I definitely think that the world would be a better place if more people had a relationship to God rather than simply believing in God. Although I wholeheartedly acknowledge that a relationship to God takes more courage & faith than just believing. Still, I wish more people would meet the Jesus I just read about especially those who think they already know him.
