A new series to turbocharge your Bible reading! We're starting a series of introductions to books of the Bible to give you a head start on how they are structured and what the main themes are to look out for. We start right at the beginning, with the book of Genesis.
We chat to author, Martha Sales, about her zany novel, The Enormous Tiny Experiment, and how a perfect world free from suffering is all but impossible. The conversation ranges from the New Atheists and questions about suffering to plate tectonics, go-karts and the universal existence of morality.
We are regularly reminded that the earth is in a dangerous state. The impact of waste, pollution, climate change and unsustainable living threaten to transform this planet. What should a Christian do? And does the Bible provide any kind of guidance on this issue? Will the earth be destroyed or will it survive?
Who is God addressing in Genesis 1:26 when he says "Let us make man in our image"? Is this evidence for the Trinity? Despite the verse often being used in this way, it doesn't take long to find some problems with this conclusion.
Looking back beyond the very beginning of time might bend your mind, but it's well worth the strain on your brain since it gives good reason to believe that something eternal, everywhere present and all powerful exists! Perhaps, it's God?
