This provocative national best seller issues a daring call for contemporary understanding of Scripture. Outspoken and controversial, John Shelby Spong brilliantly reclaims the Bible from the narrow-minded literalism that has been used to justify slavery, subordinate women, and justify war and revenge.

John Shelby Spong was Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese in Newark, New Jersey, for twenty-four years. He is known for making theology accessible and enjoyable for lay readers and his books have sold over a million copies. His works include Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, A New Christianity for a New World, Why Christianity Must Change or Die, and The Sins of Scripture: Exposing the Bible's Texts of Hate to Discover the God of Love.
