Jana_Thumbnail_Big

[display_podcast]When I hear the word “story”, I think of something epic, adventurous and intriguing.  There’s battle, sport, magic, and romance.  There’s a beginning, middle and end and some sort of conflict.But when I hear the word “Bible”, all that comes to mind is a heavy brick of a book full of strict rules with harsh and exclusive undertones and overtones.  I don’t instinctively think of the Bible as a “good story”.  I don’t think of it having battles, magic or romance.But as I … [Read more...]
