On the occasion of his seventieth birthday, the renowned Marcus J. Borg shares his convictions about Christianity and America, contending that they are both at their best when they focus on hope and transformation, and shares his thoughts on how American Christians can return to what matters most.

Reflecting on what matters most, both for the church and for Americans, leading biblical scholar and premiere teacher for Protestant churches, Marcus Borg surveys the most significant conversations and personalities that shaped his life and presents his convictions about the faith and its role in the twenty-first century.

Meditating on what makes us feel at home, he calls all American Christians to reject divisiveness and exclusivity and create communities that celebrate joy, possibility, and renewal. Throughout, he reflects on what matters most, bringing to earth the kingdom of God Jesus talked about and transforming our relationships with one another.

    " Marcus Borg, a respected theologian, gives his views on how he changed over the years as he matured from the beliefs that he was taught in Sunday School to those he held at the time of his death. Fortunately for us, he was able to write this excellent account of this personal evolution that moves away from the literal acceptance of the scriptures to the deeper meaning found therein. An outstanding work. "
