In his book Why Christianity Must Change or Die, Spong described the toxins that are poisoning the Church. Now, in A New Christianity for a New World, he offers the antidote, calling Christians everywhere into a radical reformation for a new age.A New Christianity for a New World is based on Spong’s William Belden Noble Lectures at Harvard. Spong explains why traditional understandings of God, Christ, the Church and its rule and dogmas are wrong and dangerous. He focuses on spelling out his vision of God, Jesus and the church as a community of love, equality, and truth. Proposing a Christianity premised upon justice, love, and the rise of a new humanity, Bishop Spong has created the ultimate legacy of his struggle to discover and promote a Christianity that makes sense today. John Shelby Spong was the Episcopal Bishop of Newark before his retirement in 2000. As a visiting lecturer at Harvard and at universities and churches throughout North America and the English-speaking world, he is one of the leading spokespersons for liberal Christianity. His books include Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, Resurrection: Myth or Reality?, Why Christianity Must Change or Die, and his recent autobiography, Here I Stand. “In this brave and important book, Bishop Spong continues his life-long quest for a living faith and church worthy of the Christ in whom we can find God in our time. His call for a new reformation is honest, deep, provocative, and needed -- one hopes there are those with ears to hear.” - Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessings and One River, Many Wells
