I've taken different things from this book at different times in my life. When I first read it around 2001, I didn't finish it, but appreciated the first few chapters presenting a different view of things. In my most recent read in 2011, I did finish it, and while I appreciate a reasonable amount of what Spong presents, I'm really not in agreement with a lot of it. I just feels he somehow misses something very tangible but very undefinable in experiencing God in his description of a post-theistic faith. So, food for thought (although many would find his viewpoints quite offensive), and I appreciated being challenged to think through some things, which of course is the point of reading books like this anyway. I probably took more from what I *didn't* agree with than what I did.
