Minister’s Book Group: “Unbelieveable” by John Shelby Spong

Thursdays | April 19 – June 21 | 10:30 AM – 12 PM
Registration closed

Five hundred years after Martin Luther and his 95 theses ushered in the Reformation, best-selling author, controversial bishop and teacher John Shelby Spong delivers 12 forward-thinking theses to spark a new reformation to reinvigorate Christianity and ensure its future. Spong contends that there is mounting pressure among Christians for a radically new kind of Christianity—a faith deeply connected to the human experience instead of outdated dogma. To keep Christianity vital, he urges modern Christians to update their faith in light of these advances in our knowledge, and to challenge the rigid and problematic Church teachings that emerged with the Reformation. There is a disconnect, he argues, between the language of traditional worship and the language of the 21st century. Bridging this divide requires us to rethink and reformulate our basic understanding of God.
