Unlike so many other writers in the field of religion (on both ends of the spectrum), Marcus was humble.  Once one of my parishioners asked him during Q&A, “But how do you know that you’re right?”  He paused, looked at her thoughtfully, and said, “I don’t know.  I don’t know that I’m right.”

My little Marcus Borg collection:


He always came across as a gentle man and very astute. I learned about his death yesterday afternoon and have been at a loss to know what to say here, if anything, that might be appropriate. I think Tim shares my (and no doubt many readers’) sense of sadness and loss.

    I do share in your sadness. In a field full of arrogant bullshit artists, I think Borg was different.
