Unbelievable: A Conversation with Critic of Christianity, Bishop John Shelby Spong

Bishop John Shelby Spong has been on the leading edge of progressive Christianity.

Over the decades he has shared his own honest journey with faith, doubt, and social activism as an Episcopal priest, Bishop, and author. Some of his many books include: Living in Sin? A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality, Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism: A Bishop Rethinks the Meaning of Scripture, and Why Christianity Must Change or Die: A Bishop Speaks to Believers in Exile.

He is the author of the newly released, Unbelievable: Why Neither Ancient Creeds Nor the Reformation Can Produce a Living Faith Today.

This conversation with Bishop Spong is the fourth of five interviews in my series, Revisioning Christianity.

Already we heard from John Dominic CrossanResurrecting Easter: How the West Lost and the East kept the Original Easter Vision,

Bart Ehrman, author of The Triumph of Christianity: How A Forbidden Religion Swept the World,

and David SkrbinaThe Jesus Hoax: How St. Paul’s Cabal Fooled the World for Two Thousand Years.

Next week, I speak with Angela Yarber about the Holy Women Icons Project.

All of those interviews are available on podcast at Progressive Spirit.
