Rediscovering the Bible: Its Origins, Its nature, Its Power
The Bible. We claim it as authority, we base our lives and our churches on it, we look to it for guidance and instruction.
But how did we get this book? And why are there so many different translations? How can we read and understand it for ourselves, rather than simply accepting what someone else tells us that it says? How can we dig deeply into the Bible and let it dig deeply into us? This study will encourage us to explore the answers to these and other questions we have about the Bible.
Join us in rediscovering the wonder, delight, and transforming power of the living Word of God.
