about

The Bible contains many passages that believers and nonbelievers alike would recognize as appalling theology.

Now, legendary Episcopal bishop and advocate for liberal Christianity John Shelby Spong addresses these passages, shattering our misconceptions and delivering a new vision of how Christians today can use the Bible.
