Anthony W. Bartlett
 VIRTUALLY CHRISTIAN: How Christ Changes Human Meaning and Makes Creation New

Dr. Bartlett has achieved in Virtually Christian a decidedly new approach to understanding the meaning of the life and death of Jesus for the world of the 21st century.  He has drawn on a wide variety of sources to support his thesis that the game-changing role of Jesus for contemporary (and all other) societies is that through his act of forgiveness for his executioners as he was hanging on the cross, he initiated an evolutionary change from the ubiquitous culture of violence enveloping the world to a movement towards equally ubiquitous non-violence.

Marcus J Borg Reading the Bible Again for the First Time: Taking the Bible Seriously But Not Literally

One of the vital challenges facing thoughtful people today is how to read the Bible faithfully without abandoning our sense of truth and history.  Reading the Bible Again for the First Time provides a much-needed solution to the problem of how to have a fully authentic yet contemporary understanding of the scriptures.  Many mistakenly believe there are no choices other than fundamentalism or simply rejecting the Bible as something that can bring meaning to our lives.  Answering this modern dilemma, acclaimed author Marcus Borg reveals how it is possible to reconcile the Bible with both a scientific and critical way of thinking and our deepest spiritual needs, leading to a contemporary yet grounded experience of the sacred texts.

Marcus J Borg Jesus: A New Vision

From top Jesus expert Marcus Borg, a completely updated and revised version of his vision of Jesus—as charismatic healer, sage, and prophet, a man living in the power of the spirit and dedicated to radical social change.  Fully revised and updated, this is Borg's major book on the historical Jesus. He shows how the Gospel portraits of Jesus, historically seen, make sense.  Borg takes into account all the recent developments in historical Jesus scholarship, as well as new theories on who Jesus was and how the Gospels reflect that.

The original version of this book was published well before popular fascination with the historical Jesus. Now this new version takes advantage of all the research that has gone on since the 80s.  The revisions establish it as Borg's big but popular book on Jesus.

Marcus Borg & John Crossan
The First Christmas: What the Gospels Really Teach about Jesus's Birth

In The First Christmas, two of today's top Jesus scholars, Marcus J. Borg and John Dominic Crossan, join forces to show how history has biased our reading of the nativity story as it appears in the gospels of Matthew and Luke.  As they did for Easter in their previous book, The Last Week, here they explore the beginning of the life of Christ, peeling away the sentimentalism that has built up over the last two thousand years around this most well known of all stories to reveal the truth of what the gospels actually say. Borg and Crossan help us to see this well-known narrative afresh by answering the question, What do these stories mean? in the context of both the first century and the twenty-first century.  They successfully show that the Christmas story, read in its original context, is far richer and more challenging than people imagine.

Marcus J Borg
Conflict, Holiness, and Politics in the Teaching of Jesus

Originally published in 1984, this extraordinary work has until now been available only in an expensive library edition.  The present edition has been completely updated and redesigned, and includes an extended new introduction by Marcus Borg that relates the book's central arguments to subsequent Jesus scholarship.  A foreword by N. T. Wright characterizes the book as one of the foundational works in the "third quest" for the historical Jesus.  In the book, Marcus Borg argues that conflict between a politics of holiness and a politics of compassion, and their implications for Israel, resides at the center of Jesus' activity and teaching.  He emphasizes several features that have since become central to Jesus scholarship: the importance of Jesus' inclusive meal practice, a non-apocalyptic paradigm for understanding Jesus, and Jesus as a social prophet and boundary-breaker.

Marcus J Borg
JESUS: Uncovering the Life, Teachings, and Relevance of a Religious Revolutionary

Borg returns to the ground where he made his dramatic debut with Jesus: A New Vision in 1987.  Here Borg updates his work introducing us to a Jesus we have never met before.  In many ways Borg's Jesus is more revolutionary and possesses a more exciting moral vision than the church's traditional view.  Here we meet Jesus as sage and prophet courageously and surprisingly confronting the social crises of his day.  After a lifetime of work and study, Borg also discovers a Jesus that can continue to inspire, inform and guide those who have moved beyond archaic doctrines.  Borg argues that there is a movement in the church today that is catching up with where scholarship has brought us in understanding Christian origins.  Here readers will find an historically accurate Jesus, but one who is still worth following.

Marcus J Borg JESUS at 2000

On February 9-10, 1996, six internationally known Jesus scholars participated in the first national symposium to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of the birth of Jesus.  Talking about the historical, religious, and cultural significance of Jesus, these scholars drew mass media attention and inspired a phenomenally successful follow-up discussion group on the Internet.  Jesus at 2000 makes the symposium available to those seeking an introduction to the controversial historical study of Jesus and Christian origins and to those wishing to examine the intricacies of this New Testament scholarship more carefully.

Marcus J Borg The Last Week: The Day-By-Day Account of Jesus's Final Week in Jerusalem

Using the gospel of Mark as their guide, Borg and Crossan present a day-by-day account of Jesus'  final week of life.  They begin their story on Palm Sunday with two triumphal entries into Jerusalem.  The first entry, that of Roman governor Pontius Pilate leading Roman soldiers into the city, symbolized military strength.  The second heralded a new kind of moral hero who was praised by the people as he rode in on a humble donkey.  The Jesus introduced by Borg and Crossan is this new moral hero, a more dangerous Jesus than the one enshrined in the church's traditional teachings.

John Dominic Crossan
In Search of Paul

Crossan and Reed make a compelling case for the idea that culture, politics and quest for empire played as large a part in the formation of the Apostle Paul as did theology and religious training.  It is an approach that will leave some wondering just how much of a role spirituality played in the Paul story.  The authors (Crossan is a prolific author and former co-chair of the Jesus Seminar, Reed is Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at La Verne College in California) dig deeply into the history and archeology of Paul's world, searching for an understanding of the enigmatic apostle.  Paul emerges as a fervent advocate for both the uniqueness of the Christian faith and the marginalization of others, the triumph of the City of God over the pagan and anti-God Roman empire.

HOLY HUMANITY - We Are All Made of GOD Stuff

Can we reconcile our faith in light of current understandings of science and the possibilities of studying other faiths and cultures today?  Does faith allow for new insights?  Is our faith an ongoing journey? Dare we love God and our neighbors while incorporating new understandings?  Holy Humanity answers all these questions with an unequivocal Yes!  “Here I think is the immense contribution of Holy Humanity—the integrity of the material order and its inherent spirituality.  The relationship of and with God is deeply inscribed within this order, but we do not and cannot see it because we still see creation through the lens of violence and its many destructive forms.  We can be grateful to Jim Foster for helping correct this brutal lens with all the skills of a master optician.”--Tony Bartlett, author of Virtually Christian: How Christ Changes Human Meaning and Makes Creation New.

John Dominic Crossan Who is Jesus?

Eminent biblical scholar John Dominic Crossan collaborates with Richard G. Watts to rediscover the life, the work, and the message of Jesus.  The authors explain the person and teachings of Jesus with remarkable clarity, relying on the actual historical record as much as possible. Their intention is to aid readers in a fuller and more accurate understanding of the kind of man Jesus was, what kind of world he lived in, and the legacy of his teachings to humankind.  Responding to questions about Jesus that he has been asked from all over the world, Crossan addresses the critical issues that have surrounded the Man from Galilee for centuries: his miracles, his baptism, his resurrection, and more. Crossan and Watts help us understand the life and death of Jesus in a way that goes far beyond the Gospels and the legend.  This book makes the results of a lifetime of scholarship readily available to nonspecialists who want to meet the historical Jesus.  It also leads us to a greater appreciation of Jesus' lasting impact on our lives.

The Birth of Christianity

In this national bestseller, John Dominic Crossan, the world's leading expert on the historical Jesus, reveals how Christianity emerged in the period following Jesus' death.  Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Crossan shines new light on the theological and cultural contexts from which the Christian church arose.  He argues powerfully that Christianity would have happened with or without Paul and contends that Jesus' "resurrection" meant something vastly different for his early followers than it does for many traditional Christians today--what mattered was Christina origins finally illuminates the mysterious period that set Western religious history in its decisive course.

John Dominic Crossan
God and Empire: Jesus Against Rome, Then and Now

At the heart of the Bible is a moral and ethical call to fight unjust superpowers, whether they are Babylon, Rome, or even America.
From the divine punishment and promise found in Genesis through the revolutionary messages of Jesus and Paul, John Dominic Crossan reveals what the Bible has to say about land and economy, violence and retribution, justice and peace, and, ultimately, redemption.  In contrast to the oppressive Roman military occupation of the first century, he examines the meaning of the non-violent Kingdom of God prophesized by Jesus and the equality advocated by Paul to the early Christian churches.  Crossan contrasts these messages of peace with the misinterpreted apocalyptic vision from the Book of Revelation, which has been misrepresented by modern right-wing theologians and televangelists to justify U.S. military actions in the Middle East.

Kevin Phillips American Theocracy: The Peril and Politics of Radical Religion, Oil, and Borrowed Money in the 21st Century
From America's premier political analyst, an explosive examination of the axis of religion, politics, and borrowed money that threatens to destroy the nation.  From Ancient Rome to the British Empire, Phillips demonstrates that every world-dominating power has been brought down by a related set of causes: a lethal combination of global over-reach, militant religion, resource problems, and ballooning debt.  It is this same axis of ills that has come to define America's political and economic identity in the past decade.  Military miscalculations in the Middle East, the surge of fundamentalist religion, the staggering national debt, the costs of U.S. oil dependence — together these factors are undermining our nation's security, solvency, and standing in the world.  If left unchecked, the same forces will bring a debt-bloated, preachy, energy-starved America to its knees.

Marshall Rosenberg
The Surprising Purpose of Anger: Beyond Anger Management: Finding the Gift
You can feel it when it hits you. Your face flushes and your vision narrows. Your heartbeat increases as judgmental thoughts flood your mind. Your anger has been triggered, and you're about to say or do something that will likely make it worse. You have an alternative. By practicing the Nonviolent Communication NVC process you can use that anger to serve a specific, life-enriching purpose. It tells you that you're disconnected from what you value and that your needs are not being met. Rather than managing your anger by suppressing your feelings or blasting someone with your judgments, Marshall Rosenberg shows you how to use anger to discover what you need, and then how to meet your needs in constructive ways. This booklet will help you apply these four key truths: - People or events may spark your anger but your own judgments are its cause - Judging others as "wrong" prevents you from connecting with your unmet needs - Getting clear about your needs helps you identify solutions satisfying to everyone - Creating strategies focused on meeting your needs transforms anger into positive actions.

Marshall Rosenberg
Kinder Einfühlend Ins Leben Begleiten
Gewaltfreie Kommunikation ist ein machtvoller Prozeß, um einfühlende Verbindungen und Handlungen zu inspirieren und der helfen kann, Konflikte zu vermeiden oder sie zu lösen.  Es wird eine Form der Kommunikation ermöglicht, die allen hilft, ihre Bedürfnisse zufrieden zu stellen und die problemlos auf vielen Gebieten eingesetzt werden kann: in Bildungsinstitutionen, in der Geschäftswelt und in der Industrie, bei Anbietern sozialer Dienste und in politisch belasteten Situationen, aber auch in Familien und Partnerschaften.
"Ich habe in den letzten 30 Jahren immer wieder Eltern in die Gewaltfreie Kommunikation eingeführt und würde hier gerne einige von den Dingen mitteilen, die sowohl für mich als auch für die Eltern, mit denen ich gearbeitet habe, hilfreich gewesen sind. Darüber hinaus möchte ich einige von den Einsichten weitergeben, die ich durch die herausfordernde und wunderbare Beschäftigung mit dem Thema Elternschaft gewonnen habe." - Marshall B. Rosenberg

Marshall Rosenberg
Lebendige Spiritualität
Viele von uns sehnen sich nach einer reicheren und sinnvolleren Verbindung zum Göttlichen. Gleichzeitig finden wir es schwierig, die Gebote unseres Glaubens einzuhalten, z.B.  "die andere Wange" hinzuhalten, Urteile zu vermeiden oder unsere Feinde zu lieben.

Marshall B. Rosenberg zufolge ist es unser grundlegendstes spirituelles Bedürfnis, zum Wohlergehen von anderen Menschen - aber auch zu unserem eigenen - beizutragen. Seine kurzen, spontanen Reflektionen zur spirituellen Basis der Gewaltfreien Kommunikation werden Sie nicht nur dazu inspirieren, sich mit dem Göttlichen in Ihnen selbst und in anderen zu verbinden.  Sie werden darüber hinaus beginnen, eine Welt der Empathie und des Mitgefühls zu schaffen, in der die Sprache, die wir benutzen, der Schlüssel zu einem bereichernden Leben ist.

Was Deine Wut Dir Sagen Will: überraschende Einsichten
Wir fühlen die Wut, wenn sie uns überfällt.  Unser Gesicht läuft rot an, der Blickwinkel verengt sich, der Herzschlag nimmt zu und wir werden von beurteilenden Gedanken überflutet. Unsere Wut wurde ausgelöst und gleich werden wir etwas sagen, das alles noch viel schlimmer macht.

Doch es gibt eine Alternative.  In der Gewaltfreien Kommunikation lernen wir, daß Wut einem ganz bestimmten lebensbereichernden Zweck dient. Sie ist ein Alarmsignal dafür, daß wir von dem, was wir wertschätzen, getrennt sind und daß unsere Bedürfnisse nicht erfüllt werden.  Es kann also nicht darum gehen, die Wut in den Griff zu bekommen, indem wir Gefühle unterdrücken oder daß wir andere anbrüllen, um unsere Beurteilungen loszuwerden.  Marshall Rosenberg zeigt, wie wir mit Hilfe unsere Wut unsere Bedürfnisse entdecken und wie wir sie auf konstruktive Weise erfüllen können.

John Shelby Spong Living in Sin?: A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality

Is celibacy the only moral alternative to marriage? Should the widowed be allowed to form intimate relationships without remarrying? Should the church receive homosexuals into its community and support committed gay and lesbian relationships? Should congregations publicly and liturgically witness and affirm divorces? Should the church's moral standards continue to be set by patriarchal males? Should women be consecrated bishops? Bishop Spong proposes a pastoral response based on scripture and history to the changing realities of the modern world. He calls for a moral vision to empower the church with inclusive teaching about equal, loving, non-exploitative relationships.

A New Christianity for a New World: Why Traditional Faith is Dying and How a New Faith is Being Born
It offers an understanding of Christianity that is free of exclusivity and shame. Bishop Spong empowers those who are disillusioned by religion to discover a God who is the source of life and the source of love, unbounded by the limits of any tradition. The Church of tomorrow, lie writes, must be able to "incorporate all of our reality. It must be able to allow God and Satan to come together in each of us . . . . It must unite Christ with Antichrist, Jesus with Judas, male with female, heterosexual with homosexual."
After explaining why the traditional understandings of God, Christ, and the rules and dogmas of the Church are not just inoperative but dangerous, Spong offers his contemporary vision of the Church as a community of love, equality, and truth. This work is the ultimate legacy of his struggle to discover and promote a faith system that can live in our new world. Only someone who has spent a lifetime crusading for change and the rights of outcasts in the Church could give voice to such a reasoned, just, and loving faith. With Bishop Spong we can take the brave step to discover the Christianity of tomorrow.

John Shelby Spong
The Sins of Scripture: Exposing the Bible's Texts of Hate to Reveal the God of Love
In the history of the Western World, the Bible has been a perpetual source of inspiration and guidance for countless Christians. However, this Bible has also left a trail of pain. It is undeniable that the Bible is not always used for good. Sometimes the Bible can seem overtly evil. Sometimes its texts are terrible.

Bishop John Shelby Spong boldly approaches those texts that have been used through history to justify the denigration or persecution of others while carrying with them the implied and imposed authority of the claim that they were the Word of God. As he exposes and challenges what he calls the terrible texts of the Bible, laying bare the evil done by these texts in the name of God, he also seeks to redeem these texts, hoping to recover their ultimate depth and purpose.

Die Sünden Der Heiligen Schrift
Die Bibel ist das Fundament des christlichen Glaubens und der Wertordnung nicht nur des Abendlands. Sie gilt als >>Heilige Schrift<<. In der Bibel finden sich jedoch nicht nur Irrtümer und Widersprüche, sondern auch schreckliche und hasserfüllte Texte. Es gibt sie: die Sünden der >>Heiligen Schrift<<. Nicht minder wird die Bibel mit Berufung auf ihre Autorität als >>Wort Gottes<< auch heute noch missbraucht. Krieg, Gewalttätigkeit, Unterdrückung von Minderheiten werden bis auf den Tag mit der Bibel gerechtfertigt. Christen, die andere zu Opfern machen, berufen sich auf sie.
Wie kann die Bibel über ihre eigene zerstörerische Kraft gehoben werden? Wie ist die Bibel zu lesen, damit sie nicht dazu benutzt werden kann, Böses, Schmerzen und Opfer zu begründen?
>>Ich glaube, dass die Bibel als solche bewahrt werden muss, doch nicht als das Buch, das Menschen dazu benutzten, Schmerzen und Böses in der Geschichte zu begründen.<< J.S. Spong

John Shelby Spong
Jesus for the Non-ReligiousJesus for the Non-Religious
Writing from his prison cell in Nazi Germany in 1945 Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a young German theologian, sketched a vision of what he called "religionless Christianity." In this book, John Shelby Spong puts flesh onto the bare bones of Bonhoeffer's radical thought. The result is a strikingly new and different portrait of Jesus of Nazareth—a Jesus for the non-religious.
Spong challenges much of the traditional understanding that has for so long surrounded the Jesus of history, from the tale of his miraculous birth to a virgin, to the account of his cosmic ascension into the sky at the end of his life. Spong questions the historicity of the ideas that Jesus was born in Bethlehem, that he had twelve disciples, and that the miracle stories were meant to be descriptions of supernatural events. He also speaks directly to those contemporary critics of Christianity who call God a "delusion" and who write letters to a "Christian nation" and describe how Christianity has become evil and destructive.

Liberating the Gospels: Reading the Bible with Jewish Eyes

In this boldest book since Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, Bishop John Shelby Spong offers a compelling view of the Gospels as thoroughly Jewish tests.  Spong powerfully argues that many of the key Gospel accounts of events in the life of Jesus—from the stories of his birth to his physical resurrection—are not literally true.  He offers convincing evidence that the Gospels are a collection of Jewish midrashic stories written to convey the significance of Jesus.  This remarkable discovery brings us closer to how Jesus was really understood in his day and should be in ours.

Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism: A Bishop Rethinks the Meaning of Scripture
BibleSex drove me to the Bible! This statement is literally true, but not in the sense that most would interpret it.  In 1988 my book entitled Living in Sin? "A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality was published by Harper and Row.  In that book I was led to question traditional religious attitudes and traditional religious definitions on a wide variety of sexual issues, from homosexuality to premarital living arrangements.  There was an immediate outcry from conservative religious circles in defense of something they called biblical morality. "Proof Texting and Prejudice This appeal to the Bible to justify and to sustain an attitude that was clearly passing away had a very familiar ring to me.  I grew up in America's segregated South with its rich evangelical biblical heritage.  Time after time I heard the Bible quoted to justify segregation.  I was told that Ham, Noah's son, had looked on Noah in his nakedness, and for this sin he had been cursed to servitude and slavery along with all his progeny (Gen. 9:25-27).  It did not occur to those quoting this Scripture to raise questions about what kind of God was assumed in this verse, or whether or not they could worship such a God. Since they could not identify themselves with those who were the victims of this cruelty, the God to whom they ascribed this victimizing power did not appear to them to be seriously compromised.

A daring examination of the foundational event of Christianity, and an inspiring vision for reconciliation between Jews and Christians from the bestselling author and widely respected Bishop John Shelby Spong.

Using approaches from the Hebrew interpretive tradition to discern the actual events surrounding Jesus' death, Bishop Spong questions the historical validity of literal narrative concerned the Resurrection.  He asserts that the resurrection story was born in an experience that opened the disciples' eyes to the reality of God and the meaning of Jesus of Nazareth.  Spong traces the Christian origins of anti-Semitism to the Church's fabrication of the ultimate Jewish scapegoat, Judas Iscariot.  He affirms the inclusiveness of the Christian message and emphasizes the necessity of mutual integrity and respect among Christians and Jews.

Warum Der Alte Glaube Neu Geboren Werden Muss
Gott kann nicht mehr glaubwürdig als ein Wesen mit übernatürlicher Macht verstanden werden, das in die menschliche Geschichte eingreift. Es gilt daher eine neue Form der Rede von Gott und Jesus Christus zu finden. Bischof Spong räumt klar und mit ungewohntem Freimut mit überholten christlichen Glaubensvorstellungen, Kirchenbildern und Frömmigkeitsformen auf. Alle Definitionen der Vergangenheit werden zur Diskussion gestellt.
In seinem neuen Buch zeichnet Spong eine Sicht Gottes, die über den sterbenden Theismus hinausgeht. Er entfaltet ein neues Verständnis Jesu Christi als göttlicher Gegenwart, das die traditionellen Formeln von Menschwerdung, Erlösung und Dreifaltigkeit nicht mehr verwendet. Schließlich beschreibt er seine Vision der Kirche und ihrer Liturgie für die Zukunft. Kann das Christentum seine notwendige Reformation überleben? Kann es einen neuen Wortschatz für die Glaubenstradition entwickeln? Kann es in einer nachchristlichen Welt mehr als eine Randgruppe sein?
