The Bible is the most life-changing, timeless document in history. A unified book that, on the surface, can be multifaceted and confusing:

  • filled with different genres, like wisdom literature, poetry, prophetic speeches, and historical reporting
  • written by many writers in many cultures in different languages over a long period of time.

While its message points to one unified truth, the Bible in all its many parts can be complex and difficult to navigate.
