However, we need to bear in mind that the Bible is not a compendium of answers about everything. It tells us primarily about God and his relationship to humanity. We are not to turn it into something it is not. For example, it is not a science, history or geography textbook – although the science, history and geography contained in it is accurate!
This section will deal with two particular aspects of the bible – one foundational and the other more general. The foundational is simply to look at what the Bible is (God’s Word) and why it can be trusted. Some non-Christians do not see how God could reveal himself in writing – and some Christians even struggle with aspects of that revelation.
The second part is questions that arise out of the text of the Bible. Some of these will be answered in other sections of this website – but this is the place for you to ask any questions you may have about anything in the Bible. We can’t guarantee an answer – but we will guarantee to look!
One of the resources we have is a short (5 minute) daily study of the book of Revelation. This is a often misunderstood and misrepresented book of the Bible – yet it is a book that clearly speaks to the world today. You can follow it on YouTube or Vimeo – each day. It’s called ‘Coffee with Revelation’ - here is the first one (at the time of writing we are currently up to number 62!)….
In terms of resources we would highly recommend Nancy Guthrie’s ‘Blessed’ which is a great commentary on Revelation (see the resources section).
And a wee heads up – I have been involved in an exciting project on the book of Job. A movie is being made about it and we will be involved in using and promoting that. Watch this space!
