One Human Family: The Bible, science, race and culture

A fascinating and deeply informative read that goes way beyond the normal ‘all one race’ conclusion. Combines sensitivity with a rejection of ‘political correctness’. This blow-by-blow tour of race-related issues across the world, with amazingly apt anecdotes and analogies revealing a wealth of research and life experience, is unlike any other creation book you’ve ever read. For many, it will make ‘the lights go on’—not just about race but the whole biblical ‘big picture’ of human history.

able to touch the bottom although there are some logs to stand on at times.  Image sourced from http://alwynsimple.blogspot.com/

"...that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. For this is good and

acceptable in the sight of God our Savior*, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the

knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the

Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time."

( * Jesus )   Letter - 1st Timothy  ch.2  vs.2-6.  The Holy Bible - New King James Version
