When I asked him for ideas of books to read for this project, an Italian friend suggested Alessandro Manzoni’s The Betrothed (I promessi sposi), which he had read at school and enjoyed. (All Italians read this book at school: it’s the classic Italian 19th-century novel.) I’d heard of the book, albeit primarily as an opera title (Ponchielli’s is the most famous adaptation), and was attracted by the idea of reading a substantial book for a change, most of those I’ve read so far being on the thin side.
I started this blog 3 months back but have revisited it as a result of the Manchester bombing. I often blog about things that are happening in our world in relation to prophecy and scripture; some are quite clear cut, even if it might be frightening to some people, other are quite mysterious. I mention the Illuminati and the occultists who appear to have so much power, but how much power – what is going on?
I first heard about the Bible Project at church a couple of months ago. Suffice it to say, I’m a big fan now!
If you have a moment, I encourage you to pop over to the Bible Project’s YouTube channel and check out a couple of the videos posted there. We watched one on the videos on the book of John at church recently (note that it did not substitute for the sermon or anything – our pastor used it as a way to refresh our memories about what had already happened earlier in the book), and I was pleasantly surprised at how comprehensive and lively the video was.
