Like the fundamentalists Spong opposes, he takes Christian doctrine overly literally. Unlike Spong, I firmly believe that the traditional ways of speaking of God still have a lot to say to people today. A lot more than phrases such as 'the Ground of Being'. I would dare say that a church that moves in Spong's direction would find itself very empty.

The Christianity formulated in a 1st century desert is totally inadequate <br/>to life after two thousand years of progress in science and knowledge. Spong details the <br/>inadequacies of Christianity and its traditions.

William James would say that the reason I like Bishop Spong so much is that because he reconfirms all of my already existing prejudices. But this book rang like a revelation to me. At a time when I continued to be disillusioned with the Christian church, yet was beginning to despair that I would find anything else spiritual that would be truly meaningful to me, Bishop Spong opened a door and told me that it was okay to go back inside. That the fundamentalists don't own Christianity. That I could believe as I did and still call myself Christian. I've said before that without reading this book, I never could have married Andrew, that my whole life would have been different. And I still believe that to be true. I can't really explain how grateful I am that I found it.
