A valuable introduction to textual criticism, this book explores the history of the earliest New Testament manuscripts and how and why those manuscripts were altered. That, in a true sense, I believe is what Borg helps us to do when he speaks of the evolution of following an "early faith paradigm" in his life to following an "emerging paradigm. Our problems in communication are not a failure of transmitting, but a failure of receiving.

What remains is for us to come to a greater understanding of how this purification is actually accomplished: a critical issue on which Christian tradition is by no means unanimous. They show The Heart of Christianity book knowledge to be in relationship. Different churches varied in their emphases, but what most held in common was a literal understanding of the Bible, and a propositional approach doctrines, creeds, five steps, etc to understanding what Christianity was all about. We are finding out what they saw and heard that was NEW for them. God is described as a personal being with a mind and a will, one who communicates to the prophets and responds to the prayers of His people. Examining then, the way tradition is regarded and life is lived, Borg examines these two paradigms, observing of course, that the mainline churchs have these two perspectives co-existing within them.
