Amazing Truth about the Bible

by DanlB on May 23, 2013

This book goes into the origins, history and changes that have been made to the Bible. Some of the relevations are shocking! Do read it with an open mind.

All of Bishop Spongs writings give a no nonsense look at scripture and discuss it with intelligence and self evident common sense. He goes to the heart of what it means to be a person of faith, or rather, what it means to be a moral person who lives according to the best ideals of religion based on morality and love. As such, his writings are relevant to all people, even atheists. Everyone, of any or no faith at all would benefit from any of John Shelby Spong's books.

faith and knowledge go together

One of the ideas the author is trying to get across to anyone about the Bible is that it was written in different times by people who had a completely different view of the world as we know it. This doesn't mean that the Bible is in error. It means we as modern day readers must hunt for the truths that are being presented through the filter of language, experiences and knowledge of the writers day. I would reccommend this book to anyone looking for a deeper meaning of what the Bible not only says but what it means when it says it. Good reading to anyone and be sure to keep an open mind.
