Sins of Scripture
Guest post by Jen.
What’s intriguing about retired Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong‘s new book “The Sins of Scripture: Exposing the Bible’s Texts of Hate To Reveal the God of Love” is the praise it has received from conservatives. Bill O’Reilly, undoubtedly to the right of center, says,
The Sins of Scripture’ challenges Christians to look beyond
the myths of their faith into the heart of the matter
his heretical beliefs about scripture preclude any claim to authority on the matter of resurrection, let alone any claim to being a Christian.
Countless others concur. I haven’t read this book yet but would love to hear others’ ideas about it.
