About "Why Christianity Should Change Or Die"
Bishop Spong has Long Been American Christianity's premier liberal voice. But while he has called upon Christians to confront issues ranging from the role of women in the church to the perils of fundamentalism, he has never before drawn his audacious stands on Scripture, Jesus, sin, and morality together in a modern creed. Now, in Why Christianity Must Change or Die, Spong offers his unified and brilliant new vision of authentic Christian belief for our time.^In a work even more thought-provoking and challenging than his bestselling books Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism and Living in Sin, Bishop Spong sounds the call for a Christianity based upon thought rather than blind belief, premised upon justice and love rather than judgment and literal-minded readings of the Bible. Arguing that fundamentalism is incompatible with true Christian faith -- and exploring the future of ethics, prayer, and Christianity itself -- Spong's manifesto is both the summation of his life's work and a guide for every reader searching for a reasoned, just, and loving faith.
