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.
What motivates us to read the Bible now? Is it relevant for today's modern world? And where might be a good place to start? We had a fascinating Bible Feed Live conversation that covered topics ranging from how the Covid-19 crisis has prompted displays of both human selflessness and human selfishness to the depiction of human brutality in the event of the crucifixion of Jesus. We talked about how the Bible presents solutions to the problem of mortality, wrestled with the fact that God is however largely hidden, and gave a good number of tips on where to start along with some resources to help you.
This conversation asks another big question – what is human nature really like? Dan Weatherall and Stephen Blake, a professional counsellor, explore this topic and find that, although the Bible starts with the ideal of humans reflecting God’s image, it more often paints a picture of struggle and failure. Why is that and can anything be done about it?
The question that lies at the foundation of everything else that we talk about at Bible Feed – Is there a God? Paul Davenport and Sam Day explore three of the classic arguments for the existence of God and the common objections to them. Do you find them compelling? Which do you think is the most powerful?
