Description

Unknown, unloved and unbelieved.

The Book that shaped the Western world is now on the back shelf. Is that the way it should be? Does the Bible offer anything valuable for today’s issues? These TED-style talks argue for the ongoing value of the Bible in areas of truth-telling, ethics and culture.
