Why Christian Words Have Lost Their Meaning And Power -- And How They Can Be Restored

BY MARCUS J. BORG

Brief Description:
Christianity is filled with words like "salvation" that have drifted in their meaning over the centuries until we have lost touch with what we are saying to each other when we use these words. They mean different things to different people, often sparking emotional responses in which the words and the effort to express a meaning are at cross purposes. Marcus Borg, author of "Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time," explores the challenges of religious vocabulary.
