My wife and I are part of an awesome home group through our church that meets every other Sunday evening. In our time together last night, we talked about what the Bible means to us. One person described it as our owners manual and I think that is a great description.

I just read this morning some interesting survey results from George Barna about what percentage of people believe the stories in the Bible to be literally true. The results might surprise you and may even encourage you. Go here to read more.
