Hold the water!

In the context of a world surrounded by water those Bible passages celebrating God’s setting of boundaries for the sea make sense. The sea was dangerous and should God ever stop holding these chaotic waters at bay the world would collapse.— The Biblical Cosmos, page 31

We're starting a delightful little book today (with a hearty thanks to Wipf & Stock for the book!) by Robin Parry. If you know Robin, you know that he has a wonderful British sense of humor, which manages to slip into the book here and there—keep your eye open for it as we go along.

Enjoy the ride as we step inside the minds of the biblical authors and readers. I think you'll find it enlightening and scary all at the same time!
