How well do you really know the Bible?

The Bible is the Word of God, but even on a human level it stands apart. No other book has sold so many copies; been translated into so many languages; been so often adapted, recited, and performed; or took so many years (centuries!) to write.

Join him as he explores the mysteries of the Bible, unpacks its prophecies, and examines how this ancient text is a living word—a rule of life and a letter from God addressed personally to you.
