Guests: Anthony Ashley, Elise Bryant
"I like...big...Bibles and I cannot lie." So goes the popular song parody. But where's the truth in it? Are women overachievers when it comes to faith and religious practice? Studies say yes, but the men on our panel are blowing the proverbial whistle. Maybe it's just how men practice their faith, they argue. Is there room in the middle to recognize our differences and grow together? Listen to this week's spirited discussion.
God's Big Story
Guests: Greg Koukl
Does the Bible seem intimidating to you? Does all its history, prophecy, poetry and people confuse you? Maybe you see it as a collection of a thousand little stories. What it really is, argues apologist and professor Greg Koukl, is one big story, The Story of Reality, in fact. And knowing this and living it infuses purpose and passion into the big and small things of life. Get excited about past, present and eternity as Greg breathes life into our understanding of the Bible in this exciting interview.
