John Shelby Spong, The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic, October 17-23

Bishop John Shelby Spong has sold over a million books.  He has been an outspoken advocate for religious literacy and social change in regards to race, gender, and sexuality.   In 2013 he published his latest book, The Fourth Gospel:  Tales of a Jewish Mystic.    Bishop Spong found this gospel “almost repellent” because it has been used to foster an outdated pre-modern view of God, religious exclusivism, literalism, and anti-semitism.  But when it is seen through the eyes of Jewish mysticism, it comes alive in a relevant way for 21st century seekers.

  1. That was excellent! It was the high-water mark of your program. You did a great job of staying out of Spong’s way and letting him roll.
