really liked it
bookshelves: religion
Recommended for: progressive Christians
Read in January, 2005

This is one of the many progressive Christian books I've read by Spong, Borg, Crossin, Armstrong, et. al.

Spong doesn't pull any punches and flat out points out the hateful and down-right evil parts of Christian scripture out there and how a modern person can reconsile oneself with it. These scriptures were all written by violent ancient people who really had no real understanding of the world they lived in. When you take the cultural crap out of it, the wisdom teachings can be very instructive. If you take this stuff literally, then I'm sorry for you.
