Putting Away Childish Things: A Tale of Modern Faith

Putting Away Childish Things Putting Away Childish Things HarperOne

Marcus Borg

HarperOne, 2010

Biblical theologian Borg's first novel is about those issues which the contemporary church is wrestling with: the nature of Jesus, acceptance of homosexuality, and the literary origins of the Bible.  He places these issues in the life of Kate, a professor who enjoys her life and work and finds those threatened when faced with responses to her honest answers to these difficult questions.

 

“Borg offers up a didactic novel that explores some of the thorniest theological issues facing the Christian community. ... he is to be commended for taking up a new form of literature to share his theological perspective—a perspective that many have found to be generous, open and hopeful.” -Christian Century

 

“Can a world renowned biblical scholar really write an entertaining work of fiction? The answer is absolutely YES! I was hooked by the end of the first chapter.” -Progression of Faith
