SIXTY-SIX BOOKS OF THE BIBLE
From the creation story in Genesis to the new heaven and new earth of Revelation, Henry Brinton will give an overview of the most important passages in the 66 books of the Bible. In this 3-part series participants will gain an understanding of the key ideas offered in these books and their relevance in everyday life. Through this we hope to initiate a discussion on the values that are central to humanity and embodied in all religions and faiths.
