Item description for God at 2000 by Marcus J. Borg & Ross MacKenzie...

(PUBMorehouse)A dialogue extraordinaire! Leading figures in world religion (Karen Armstrong, Marcus Borg, Diana Eck, Joan Chittister, Lawrence Kushner, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Desmond Tutu) answer the question, "How do your personal experiences, your story, and your faith influence how you see God?" 176 pages, hardcover.

Publishers Description
"How do your personal experiences, your study, and your faith perspective influence the way you, as an individual, see God?" That was the question posed to these seven renowned authors and scholars. Representing a wide variety of faith perspectives Karen Armstrong, Diana Eck, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Joan Chittister, Lawrence Kushner, Desmond Tutu, and Marcus Borg explore the ways in which their life experiences have shaped their personal understanding of God.

Originally given as lectures at the God at 2000 conference in February, 2000, each presentation has been rewritten for a reading audience. Conversation starters, based on the questions asked at the conference itself, are included, making this an excellent resource for small group study. An introduction, written by Marcus Borg, provides readers with a frame of reference that will help them explore the issues raised in the book, and become clear about their own personal understanding of God.

Reviews - What do customers think about God at 2000?

How do you see God?  Dec 13, 2003
Seven contmporary scholars from varying religious traditions: Karen Armstrong, Diana Eck, Sayyed Hossein Nesr, Joan Chittister, Laurence Kushner, Desmond Tutu, and Marcus Borg attempt to answer thid provocative questions each in his or her own fashion. The result is thoughful,challenging, and enlightening. I would have loved to attend the discussions the book is based on, but since i did not I appreciate the book to give me an idea of what it must have been like.
Moving beyond irrational theism  Aug 30, 2001
The fundamental theological issue of our time is the nature of God. In the past, our ideas about God have been largely theistic or anthropomorphic -- i.e. a God who intervenes in the affairs of this world, makes demands and engages in judgement. In this compelling set of essays, consisting of transcripts of the well-received God at 2000 lectures and forum held in Corvallis, Oregon in 2000, several world-class scholars develop this theme. Anyone who wishes to move in the direction of the theology of the future is likely to find this book both interesting and rewarding.
