Eternal Life and Bishop Spong




We are beginning a new book for Thursdays With Jesus. It is the latest from John Shelby Spong, Eternal Life: A New Vision (Beyond Religion, Beyond Theism, Beyond Heaven and Hell).




In the most recent book by Bishop Spong, he continues sharing with his readers his quest for an honest faith. He writes:




The choice to write this particular book was deliberately made to force faith and knowledge to come together. I decided to see whether or not I really still believed in life after death. p. 199




You may be surprised at his conclusion. You may come to the same conclusion or to a different one for yourself. Either way, you may find that his journey awakens your own.

Our study group is open to all. We meet Thursdays from 10:30 to noon. If you wish to participate in this study, please order the book and read the preface and chapter 1 for Thursday, October 6th.
