1/27/07: Jesus in America

Dr. Marcus Borg is the Hundere Distinguished Professor of Religion and Culture at Oregon State University.

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Religious scholar Marcus Borg agrees that the US is Christ-haunted. More than any other country in the historically Christian world, the figure of Jesus is prominent in the media and in public discussion. But while America has the highest percentage of people who identify themselves as Christians, they sharply disagree on who Christ was. Marcus Borg is coming to Salt Lake City, and joins us for a conversation about Jesus, what he taught, and why he plays such a prominent role in our culture today.

Dr. Marcus Borg will be in Salt Lake City, a guest of Christ United Methodist Church, February 2, 3 and 4. Tickets are required for his Friday evening lecture at 7:30 and and his series of lectures on Saturday. He will also give Sunday's sermon at 9:00 a.m., which is free and open to the public. For tickets and details, call Christ United Methodist Church at 486-5473 or visit them on-line.

These events are part of the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable's Interfaith Week 2007. For information on other events, click here
