Resources for You
Many of us at Tippecanoe Church who have started our journey found it helpful to read and study works by some of today's most provocative authors. Their books are easy to read and most are available in e-book format. These authors are:
John Shelby Spong, author of Why Christianity Must Change or Die and Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism
John Dominic Crossan, author of The Greatest Prayer: Rediscovering the Revolutionary Message of the Lord's Prayer
Marcus Borg, author of Speaking Christian: Why Christian Words Have Lost Their Meaning and Power-And How They Can be Restored
We also frequently access the resources at: The Center For Progressive Christianity
We invite you to read:
Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World by Bishop John Shelby Spong
A good way to start to see how the Bible was constructed. Bishop Spong provides a summary of each of the more important books of the Old Testament and New Testament. You will not become Bible literate but it provides a base to start a journey.
What We Believe Does Not Matter
An essay published in 2011 in the BBC News Magazine. It discusses belief and what is its relationship to religion. This is also a topic that Marcus Borg writes about.
