The Chaos Ladder: Seeing The Forest – Episode 10

The Chaos Ladder is a podcast by Steve Flowers that explores how the Bible is not a gaping pit waiting to swallow us but a ladder for us to climb.

Episode 10 — Working out our own summary of the Bible can help us better understand how isolated verses fit into the Bible.

An example summary of the Bible is included.
