Calendar

Bishop Spong delivers many public lectures each year to standing-room-only crowds throughout the world. Under the video below is a schedule of his upcoming appearances.

Published on Jul 9, 2012

Bishop John Shelby Spong’s message might alienate certain types of believers–namely, biblical literalists. But he stands strong in his analysis of the Bible as a symbolic work and calls Christ’s followers today to recognize their teacher as a “boundary-breaker,” not a “blood offering.” This lecture ended Spong’s weeklong lecture on “Re-Claiming the Bible in a Non-Religious World.”
