  • The Bible in the History Channel

    Posted on March 23, 2013 by Dan Beaty in Christian Living.

    Well, after watching the first 3 episodes in the History Channel’s mini series on the Bible, I have little to complain about.

I think their approach was to […]

    It’s time to get started in actually reading the Bible! There are many good places to start, but we decided the beginning is as good as any. In Genesis 1 we learn about Creation, and God’s purpose for His Creation.
