Abstract This article focuses on Marcus J Borg’s book “Reading the Bible again for the first time” with the all important subtitle “Taking the Bible seriously but not literally.” He offers a new understanding of Scripture that respects both tradition and reality, blending biblical scholarship with a concern for authentic faith. This article presents a synopsis of the contents of Borg’s book, together with remarks, additions and even includes contradictory viewpoints from other contemporary scholars, which are being included not with the purpose of taking sides, but to stimulate conversation on Bible reading, a burning issue of our times.
