9780060670634: A New Christianity for a New World: Why Traditional Faith is Dying and How a New Faith is Being Born

In his bestselling book Why Christianity Must Change or Die, Bishop John Shelby Spong described the toxins that are poisoning the Church. Now he offers the antidote, calling Christians everywhere into a new and radical reformation for a new age. Spong looks beyond traditional boundaries to open new avenues and a new vocabulary into the Holy, proposing a Christianity premised upon justice, love, and the rise of a new humanity -- a vision of the power that might be.

Review:

In this brave and important book, Bishop Spong continues his life-long quest for a living faith and church worthy of the Christ in whom we can find God in our time. His call for a new reformation is honest, deep, provocative, and needed--one hopes there are those with ears to hear. --Matthew Fox, author of Original Blessings and One River, Many Wells
