Marcus BorgIt is with sadness we mark the passing of Marcus J. Borg, a significant Jesus scholar and author of  twenty-one books on the historical Jesus, Christian faith, the Bible, and more.

Among his many interests, Professor Borg was one of the group of scholars that advocated for the creation of what has become the Psychology and Biblical Studies Section of the Society of Biblical Literature. He served on the organizing committee and was the moderator of the first session, held in 1991. Since that time, he served on the Steering Committee and several times as a participant in Annual Meeting sessions.

He will be greatly missed.
