The Sins of Scripture: Exposing the Bible's Texts of Hate to Reveal the God of Love.
Bishop Spong's book, The Sins of Scripture is structured around 8 sections, each with at least 2 chapters.
The initial threads in this web guide have been set up to facilitate discussion of each section, as well as providing for later use of the archives by discussion group leaders and the general public:
- SOS1 Word of God
- SOS2 Bible and Environment
- SOS3 Bible and Women
- SOS4 Bible and Homosexuality
- SOS5 Bible and Children
- SOS6 Bible and AntiSemitism
- SOS7 Bible and Certainty
- SOS8 Epic History
Throughout the book, Spong identifies various biblical verses as Terrible Texts. Here is a consolidated list of those texts from the Bible for your convenience.
