Author(s): John Shelby Spong
Five hundred years after the Reformation of 1517, Christianity is once again in crisis. In failing to adapt to advances in our thinking and spiritual perspectives, it has clung to outdated concepts and has tenaciously defended dogmas formed before major advances in human thought had occurred. For John Shelby Spong the creeds have become simply unbelievable. In this, his final book, Spong outlines twelve "theses" to help today's believers contemplate and reshape their faith at a far deeper level.
