Famed scientist and atheist Richard Dawkins says about the Bible:
“To be fair, much of the Bible is not systematically evil but just plain weird, as you would expect of a chaotically cobbled-together anthology of disjointed documents, composed, revised, translated, distorted and 'improved' by hundreds of anonymous authors, editors and copyists, unknown to us and mostly unknown to each other, spanning nine centuries”
So how can the Bible possibly be relevant today?
Join us as we ask some of the Bigger Questions relevant to the inner north of Melbourne and hear three stories about how Jesus makes a positive difference today.
