Word Pictures examines the rich imagery and startling storytelling that make up the majority of the Bible.

Description

“Christianity is logical and reasonable, but its not merely logical and reasonable. Award winning screen writer and popular Christian apologist Brian Godawa, in Word Pictures: Knowing God through Story and Imagination, looks beyond the roughly 30% of the Bible that is made up of Laws and propositional truth, to the rich imagery and startling storytelling that make up the majority of the Bible. It is in this mix of symbol, narrative, law and logic that God compels, encourages and instructs us, and we come to know and love God with our whole selves.”

Dear BioLogos reader ...

In the escalating vitriol in our culture, “science” and “faith” have found each other on opposite sides of a polarized divide. Truth and community are under attack.

If there is one thing the pandemic has shown us, it is what science can and cannot do. Scientists and doctors have done amazing things during the pandemic—identified the virus, treated the disease, and developed safe vaccines that work.

But in these polarized times, science can’t reduce anger, forgive sins, build mutual respect, or fill us with compassion for others.

Science alone can’t give us hope. Faith can. Join BioLogos today in reaching a world desperate for hope. Your tax-deductible donation will be the difference between someone encountering misinformation, or a thoughtful, truthful, and hopeful Christian perspective that shows faith and science working hand in hand.
