  • Western civilization has long been fascinated by mythology. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in blockbuster movies such as the “Indiana Jones” series, “Star Wars,” “Lord of the Rings,” “Avatar” and “Clash of the Titans,” along with television standards such as “Hercules” and “Xena.”
    This is all great fun, but what if myths were actually based on demonstrable historical fact? What might these stories tell us about humankind’s mysterious past and how might this knowledge help to serve as a guide for the future?

  • “What insights might the Bible have for us as we come through another fire?” —John

    We don’t need the Bible to remind us that life is full of unpleasant experiences, dangerous times and many interruptions of our well-made plans. Of course, the Bible is replete with accounts of such things because it is essentially the story of how humans and God interact in times of crisis.
