In The Beginning PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

In The Beginning free pdf What's in the Bible? Some people have dim, childhood memories of lost sheep and awe-struck shepherds while others assume it's all about an angry god raining down fire and brimstone on sinners. Which it is, of course, but there's a lot more to it than just that. As the arguments between atheists and believers become ever more strident, isn't it time we took another look at the book which has had such a profound influence on the world? Picking his way carefully between these extremes, Alex Games examines the stories and teachings of the Bible, together with their huge social and historical legacy. With humour, insight and a refreshing lack of earnestness, In The Beginning will not only help you to identify this timeless quotation or that miracle. It will also discuss why these events matter, how they have been interpreted, and why they continue to resonate, and be reinterpreted, in successive generations. So if you can't read the writing on the wall, or you feel like a voice in the wilderness, don't hide your lamp under a bushel. Read In The Beginning: there's quite a sting in the tail.
