We have a book called the Bible. It is very important to us.

  • So why do we believe it?
  • How did it come about?
  • How should we interpret it?

Many Christians have these questions but never get them answered.

In this class you will explore the answers to these questions and more. Be prepared to take notes and bring your thinking cap.
