My name is Keith Giles. I love to write so that people can know Jesus and experience His life in their own.
So, I started this blog to help people understand who Jesus is, and how He reveals what the Father is really like.
This is a safe place to talk about all those questions you've had about the Bible, and Christianity. It's also a place to learn how to put the words of Jesus into practice.

FINAL: Podcast Dialog - "Does The Evangelical View of the Cross Lead To Violence?"
Awesome Part 3 of a conversation between Quoir authors Matthew Distefano, Keith Giles, and Jamal Jivanjee and about how Evangelical Christian views of the crucifixion relate to ideas about redemptive violence, and more.
In this Podcast we talk about:
2:30 – Are we making claims for the Bible that it doesn’t even make for itself?
9:55 – What is a “Flat Bible” perspective vs a “Jesus-Centric” perspective?
14:50 – Why Jesus is superior to the Old Testament
18:40 – Has the Bible hindered Christianity?
26:00 – Is it appropriate to “chuck the Scripture”?
30:25 – Why context matters
31:50 – Why the Holy Spirit and community are essential to understanding Scripture
