The Land and the Book
Air Date April 26, 2014
Did you every notice how much of the Bible focuses on the lives of people? The patriarchs. Moses and Joshua. Ruth and Boaz. David. Solomon. Jesus and His disciples. From Genesis to Revelation the Bible is a book about people. And that’s what makes The Biographical Bible so intriguing. Dr. Ruth Tucker has taken the men and women found on the pages of Scripture and reminded us again of their essential humanness. We’ll talk with Dr. Tucker about her latest book.
Then later in the program, during our devotional time, we’ll visit the lost and found department at En Harod to focus on Gideon…the warrior from Ophrah who found his courage at this small stream!
