Commentary on John Gibbs' "What Do Near-Death Experiencers and Jesus Have in Common? The Near-Death Experience and Spong's New New Christianity"
Description: Abstract: John Gibbs relates research findings on near-death experiences (NDEs) to John Shelby Spong's "continuity view of Jesus" and his "call for a new Christianity." Gibbs' argument falls short of demonstrating congruence of the scientific findings of NDE research with the theological claims of Spong, who posits that Jesus was not God, but just a person.
