Recovers the lost messages of Mark, Matthew, Luke-Acts, and John for people today


The words of the gospels were meant to be heard. While we can still appreciate the construction and grasp some understanding when we read, we miss much of the message because we're working in the wrong medium. In Written to Be Heard Paul Borgman and Kelly James Clark offer the keys to recovering the radical, relevant messages of each gospel as they were first heard.


The shaping of the gospels for oral performances, which would have been obvious to ancient (mostly preliterate) listeners, is lost on even the best contemporary reader. With careful analysis of the gospel writers' particular voices within their own ancient literary context, Borgman and Clark equip readers to read as if hearing, focusing on overlapping patterns of hearing cues that shape each text and embed theological perspective.

Paul Borgman

Paul Borgman (Ph.D. University of Chicago) is professor of English at Gordon College, Wenham, Massachusetts. A specialist in biblical narrative, he teaches annually in 'the Bible as literature.' Each course approaches books of the Bible on their own terms (as the great literature they are), with literary tools appropriate to the text itself. This same approach is reflected in Paul's three books: Genesis, The Story We Haven't Heard(2001); The Way According to Luke: Hearing the Whole Story (2006), and David, Saul, and God: Rediscovering An Ancient Story forthcoming (2008, Oxford).

Kelly James Clark

Kelly James Clark is associate professor at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
