    Early spong

    This book was interesting to me because it is Dr. Spong in his early days. I have a feeling he would not really want this book to be available any more. It reveals two things about the writer: first that Spong early seminary training had a much deeper repsect on the biblical material than he presently has. There is an amazing unity of thought he appeals to in the book and it actually has very traditional thought found throughout the church.secondly he has embraced a much morebroken and less unified biblical scholarship that he always claims in almost universally accepted but in truth is not even in most mainline seminaries. I like Spong to tell you thet truth and have read all of his books, but a little of the early Spong would serve the Church better. I know he sees the mission field as exile believers butin the end his deep and growing disrespect of the church should have him travel back and read his osn early works! I for one would love to welcome him back from his own self exile!
