Episode 16 - Better Than Dry Chicken

How do we know we can trust the Bible? It’s an important question, particularly since Christians are called to base their lives on it.

So this week’s episode is part two of our mini-series on the Bible and we want to talk about how we know the books we have in our Bibles are the ones we should have, which translation of the Bible is the best, as well as how to begin reading it.

Our hope is that you would walk away from these two episodes having a greater confidence in your Bible, as well as some tactical resources for diving into it!
