John Shelby Spong, bestselling author and Episcopal bishop of Newark, NJ, challenges the doctrine of the virgin birth, tracing its development in the early Christian church and revealing its legacy in our contemporary attitudes toward women and female sexuality.
“How a one-sided portrayal of the Mother of God has been used to keep real women under wraps.”
“Spong restores a flesh-and-blood humanity to the mother of Jesus.”
“A marvelous combination of scholarly, speculative, and imaginative reflection written in language accessible to the theologically unsophisticated. Highly recommended.”
