  • Episode 2: The Bible

    Many people across the world actually find the Bible really hard to deal with for two reasons. Firstly, there’s the supernatural and miraculous content of the Bible.

    In the United Kingdom in the 19th century it’s said that church attendance was about 50%. By the 1970s that dropped to 12% and right now it’s down to about 6.3%.
