New Christianity for a New World : Why Traditional Faith Is Dying & What Should
Take Its Place
John Shelby Spong, retired Episcopal Bishop,
is in no way retiring. In fact, he has probably sparked more controversy than
any other church official within a mainline denomination. Spong's views on the
Bible, human sexuality, and basic Christian beliefs may shock conservative readers.
Here he takes on some of the most basic Christian doctrines, and finds them in
need of radical revision.

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.
