I had the oppurtunity to call into Borders Bookshop yesterday and came across a book called "Rescuing Jesus From Christians". It is written by Clayton Sullivan who is described as being a Biblical Scholar and minister of the Southern Baptist Convention in the U.S. The content of his book certainley looked interesting. Yet when I picked it up today to have another look at it, I found this comment written on the back of it, which sounded ok untill I read who authored that comment - Highly Readable, this book is designed to force Christian leaders into a new honesty and the Christian Church into a New Reformation. It challenges deeply the formulas of traditional orthodoxy, but does so from quoting from the very sources from which Orthodoxy claims its authority. Sullivans words should be heeded by all seekers of truth. - John Shelby Spong. Is Clayton Sullivan a Conservative, a Moderate or a Liberal? Does the Southern Baptist Convention endorse his ministry?
