Hal Taussig, A New New Testament

The Christian religion is changing. Everything is on the table including the Bible. My guest, Dr. Hal Taussig, professor at Union Theological Seminary in New York City and pastor at Chestnut Hill United Methodist Church in Philadelphia is the editor of A New New Testament:  A Bible for the 21st Century Combining Traditional and Newly Discovered Texts. This document includes as sacred scripture ten texts from antiquity that some early Christians used but never made it into the canon.  These include The Gospel of Thomas, The Gospel of Truth, The Acts of Paul and Thecla and seven others. I speak with Dr. Taussig about the process of selecting these texts, their significance, and what they mean for spiritual seekers in the 21st century.
