Jesus for the Non-Religious

part 1 – – – part 2 – – – part 3

I am reading Spong’s Jesus for the Non-Religious, and I must say that I am totally fascinated by the book. While I have never been a literalist, and I have no attachment to dogma, what Spong has to say is challenging. But when he starts by saying “this is not news”, and points out that this sort of stuff has been taught in seminaries for decades…it leaves me rather disappointed in the clergy as a whole. Why did no one tell me this sooner? Why isn’t this sort of thing talked about in church more often? Why keep treating people like children, to be protected from difficult truths?
