Say "Hello" to THE BIBLE PROJECT

A couple of years ago I was introduced by a friend to THE BIBLE PROJECT, and I want you as my readers to be familiar with them too. The brainchild of Dr. Timothy Mackie and Jonathan Collins, THE BIBLE PROJECT communicates solid, engaging, biblical training in a beautifully done video format. These guys are passionate about people reading and knowing the story of the Bible, and I love what they are offering the church!
