Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism
4 journalers for this copy...
I ended up with two copies of this, so I'll release this extra copy for someone else to enjoy.
This book will be traveling on a bookray
. Send me a private message
if you're interested in participating. Please include shipping preferences if you have any.
Tips for successful participation in a bookray or ring:
- As soon as you receive the book, add a journal entry so the sender knows it wasn't lost in transit.
- Try to read the book within 1-3 months so those after you in the shipping order don't have to wait too long.
- When you mail the book, add a journal entry with the date you mailed it. This will help me track it down with the postal service if it gets lost in transit.
Here are the BookCrossers who have expressed an interest in this bookray. We'll try to stick to this order if at all possible. When you're done, send a private message to the next person on the list and arrange to mail it to him or her. The last person on the list can pass it on to whomever they want. Enjoy! michaeljl Luintaurien

I sent this via media mail to michaeljl
this morning. Enjoy!
Received today by mail from Veruca. Will read promptly and forward.
Mailed to Luintaurien.
Very thought provoking for any reader willing to question authority. Occasionally the examples get bogged down in minutia, and occasionally the author's conclusions extrapolate beyond what is warranted, and definitely beyond what is needed. But overall it is on the mark.
Got it today. Will read and pass on ASAP. Thank you.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
Sent to Aramena for help with shipping.
Arrived safe and sound. Am currently reading another ring, so will begin this as soon as that one is put to bed. Thank you for sharing!
I agree with most of the points Spong tries to make with this book. Unfortunately, he often came across as rather pedantic and I frequently felt as though he was trying to speak down to his audience.
A good introduction to non-literalist views of scripture for anyone who won't be hurt by some vitriolic, anti-fundi rhetoric.
I've e-mailed noumena11 and will post this as soon as I hear back from her. Thanks for sharing this book with me!
