Eternal Life

Eternal Life

A New Vision: Beyond Religion, Beyond Theism, Beyond Heaven And Hell

BY JOHN SHELBY SPONG
Bishop Spong is known for his controversial ideas and fighting for minority rights. In Eternal Life: A New Vision, a remarkable spiritual journey about his lifelong struggle with the questions of God and death, he reveals how he came to a new conviction about eternal life. God, says Spong, is ultimately one, and each of us is part of that oneness. We do not live on after death as children who have been rewarded with heaven or punished with hell but as part of the life and being of God, sharing in God's eternity, which is beyond the barriers of time and space.

The Fourth Gospel

The Fourth Gospel

Tales Of A Jewish Mystic

BY JOHN SHELBY SPONG
From Chapter 1: "Throughout most of my professional career I was not drawn to the Fourth Gospel: indeed I found it almost repellent. . . . John's gospel helped to fuel such dreadful events in Christian history as heresy hunts and the Inquisition. . . . [Eventually, though} John's gospel began to unfold before me as a work of Jewish mysticism. . . . John's gospel is about life-expanded life, abundant life and ultimately eternal life-but not in the typical manner that these words have been understood religiously."

Jesus For The Non-religious - Paperback

Jesus For The Non-religious - Paperback

BY JOHN SHELBY SPONG
Spong invites his readers to look at Jesus through the lens of both the Jewish scriptures and the liturgical life of first-century synagogues. He proposes we understand Christ as the ultimate dimension of a fulfilled humanity. "Traditional Christians" may not be comfortable with this book; however after reading it skeptics may not be ale to dismiss Jesus so easily. This could be the book that finally brings the pious and the secular into a meaningful dialogue, opening the door to a living Christianity in the post-Christian world.

Why Christianity Must Change Or Die

Why Christianity Must Change Or Die

A Bishop Speaks To Believers In Exile

BY JOHN SHELBY SPONG
Bishop Spong proposes a Christianity based on a whole new way of thinking, premised upon justice and love rather than judgment and literal readings of the Bible. Arguing that fundamentalism is incompatible with true Christian faith, Spong's manifesto is the summation of his life's work and a guide for every reader searching for a reasoned, just, and loving faith.
