Bishop John Shelby Spong, retired Episcopal bishop and pioneer of progressive Christianity, leads this event based on his most recent book, Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World. The day includes a lecture, Q&A and book signing. Spirituality Conference Group is a co-sponsor of this event.

The claim that the Bible is the “Word of God” in any literal sense violates every rational faculty that human beings possess, says Bishop Spong. He is the author of more than 20 books that have sold more than a million copies. He was an Episcopal bishop for more than 24 years. During his career he has lectured at more than 400 colleges and universities around the world including Cambridge and Harvard. In 2010, his portrait was commissioned to hang in the Hall of Honor at the Martin Luther King Jr. International Chapel at Morehouse College in Atlanta with other civil rights movement leaders for his work as a champion of justice.
