Re: [XTalk] Spong?
- Not good for scholars as they point out the obvious that scholars of the Bible have known about for years. Invaluable to dullards who believe that the Bible is "inerrant" or the "breathed word of God". Since I don't believe, and I do qualify this as a personal belief, that no one can belong to both camps (scholar and "dullard"), I am often amazed why Spong is brought up in this forum.Sincerely,Sam Gibson----- Original Message -----From: Bob SchachtSent: Wednesday, September 27, 2000 2:49 PMSubject: [XTalk] Spong?OK, my uncle has been after me for several years now to read some of

I haven't read any of them until now, because from what I've heard, they're
mostly derivative, based on the work of Goulder & others without much
scholarly addition (is this a fair assessment?)
So here's my question: Which is the best book of Spong's to read (from the
perspective of the interests and purposes of this list)?
