A controversial exploration of biblical passages that are used to justify discrimination, oppression, and violence against women, homosexuals, members of other faiths, children, and the environment seeks to reveal and recover the texts' ultimate depth and purpose, counseling Christians on how to embrace a new vision of how to use the Bible for genuine good and peace. Reprint. 40,000 first printing.

HARPERCOLL

The Bible contains many passages that believers and nonbelievers alike would recognize as appalling theology. Whether these texts are used to discriminate, oppress, or condemn, they distort the truth of Christianity and cast doubt upon the love of God. Now, legendary Episcopal bishop and advocate for liberal Christianity John Shelby Spong addresses these passages, shattering our misconceptions and delivering a new vision of how Christians today can use the Bible.
