Deals with the author's life-long struggle with the questions of God and death. This title reveals how he ultimately came to believe in eternal life.
Bishop Spong, author of “Jesus for the Non Religious”, “Why Christianity Must Change or Die”, and many other books, is known for his controversial ideas and fighting for minority rights. Spong also has a natural gift for storytelling. These qualities come through in this remarkable spiritual journey about his life-long struggle with the questions of God and death in which he reveals how he ultimately came to believe in eternal life. God, says Spong, is ultimately one, and each of us is part of that oneness. This is how we live on after death: not in Heaven or Hell, but as part of the eternity that continues after we die beyond the barriers of time and space.
