I enjoyed this audiobook, I had my emotions going up and down throughout the reading. It makes me want to learn more about the history of blacks other than what was taught in school.

Writing from his prison cell in Nazi Germany in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, a young German theologian, sketched a vision of what he called "Religionless Christianity". In this book, John Shelby Spong puts flesh onto the bare bones of Bonhoeffer's radical thought. The result is a strikingly new and different portrait of Jesus of Nazareth, a Jesus for the non-religious.

I truly enjoyed the audiobook. It gave me a deeper understanding of what I already believed. Better yet, John articulated what I could not. I struggled because I thought that one day soon I would totally reject God and Jesus, but now i have an understanding that I can keep them with me and yet not bowing down to the mythology of Jesus. Thank you.
