“Convictions: How I Learned What Matters Most” by Marcus J. Borg conveys an overall message that is both simple and urgently needed: Change is a good and natural part of Christian life. Marcus reminds us that change is a normal process in Christianity, but change is more than just history — it’s a personal journey. As millions of Americans are aging, he argues, it’s time to talk openly across the generations. It’s time to talk honestly, he tells us, about how our childhood assumptions concerning faith usually pass through what Marcus calls the “conversions” that are a rich part of becoming an adult — and then can deepen into the “convictions” that form a foundation for a long and meaningful life.
