Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An important and respected voice for liberal American Christianity for the past twenty years, Bishop John Shelby Spong integrates his often controversial stands on the Bible, Jesus, theism, and morality into an intelligible creed that speaks to today's thinking Christian. In this compelling and heartfelt book, he sounds a rousing call for a Christianity based on critical thought rather than blind faith, on love rather than judgment, and that focuses on life more than religion.

Synopsis:

The Episcopal Bishop of Newark in New Jersey examines Christianity and argues for a creed based on critical thought, love, and life.
