  • What is the Bible?
    • The Bible is not a book for the faint of heart - it is a book full of all the greed and glory and violence and tenderness and sex and betrayal that benefits mankind. It is not the collection of pretty little anecdotes mouthed by pious little church mice - it does not so much nibble at our shoe leather as it cuts to the heart and splits the morrow from the bone. It does not give us answers fitted to our small-minded questions, but truth that goes beyond what we can even know to ask.
