Distilled into a single volume, here is the essence of Marcus Borg: the world’s leading spokesman for progressive Christianity until his death in 2015, and one of the most widely respected and influential theologians of our time.In his many critically acclaimed books, Marcus J. Borg pioneered a new kind of Christianity: one that resonates with progressive, socially engaged Christians throughout the world. Now, two years after his death, comes Days of Awe and Wonder, a selection from his most important and enduring works, some of them hitherto unpublished, which explores what it means to be a Christian in the twenty-first century.
Provocative and uplifting, this anthology will enlighten all who are meeting Marcus Borg for the first time, and amply reward those who would like to renew their acquaintance with one of the world’s finest theological writers.

Leonard Sweet wants to show you the ins and outs of living an old-fashioned faith in these newfangled times. In his engaging, symphonic, thought-bytes style, Sweet invites you to…
Mezuzah your universe * Do dirt and do the dishes * Cycle to church
Give history a shove * Cheer rivals from the bench * Dance the salsa
Soul Salsa unpacks biblical faith in ways that can change how you live in the real world. You can be a man or woman who walks the ancient path of a disciple in the world of the future. Because the NEW future is NOW – and now is the time to practice the “17 Lifestyle Requirements for Membership in the Postmodern Body of Christ.” It’s no longer enough to “Say Amen, Somebody.” It’s time to “Dance the Salsa, Everybody!” – in a culture that desperately needs your moves.
The Linns have a knack for choosing topics that are very timely and communicating them in a way that speaks to our everyday experience. In this book they explore how we discover our unique calling and develop it as a gift – for ourselves, others and the earth. For those caught up in our hectic culture, this little book is a rich source for reflection and prayer that can be used either individually or with groups.
