John Shelby Spong, whose books have sold more than a million copies, was the Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Newark for 24 years before his retirement in 2001.  In the early 90’s, Bishop John Shelby Spong began offering a subscription based publication to share his freshest thoughts with his fans. Over the years that publication became very popular and gained a large following. His admirers acclaim his legacy as a teaching bishop who makes contemporary theology accessible to the ordinary lay person- he’s considered a champion of an inclusive faith by many both inside and outside the Christian church.

 

Upon Bishop Spong’s retirement in 2016, Progressing Spirit was borne as an innovative next step, which was not to go out not find another Bishop Spong, but instead to recruit a host of leading thinkers who could share ideas and insights about our progressing social, theological, and spiritual world; with perspectives from the pulpits, academies, and front lines around the world.
