Moving Beyond Literalism and Supernatural Theism

A pioneer of the progressive Christian movement, John Shelby Spong, returns for the third time to Progressive Spirit. We discuss his 25th book, Biblical Literalism: A Gentile Heresy.
The retired Episcopal Bishop of Newark demonstrates that the gospel writers were not writing material to be taken literally but liturgically. As Christianity moved away from Judaism it lost its ability to interpret the stories about Jesus. The Christian faith became a matter of believing things that can’t possibly be true. Fundamentalist Christians, says Spong, are heretics. He charts a course for spiritual thinkers to embrace faith and the modern world. Visit Bishop Spong’s Website
