Genocide in the Bible. Did Joshua really kill all those people? Should we take scumbag Samson at his word? How to talk to right wing Christians. How the flood story is all about God's re-Creation. All part of this interview with academic from Bristol Baptist College and head of the Centre for the Study of Bible and Violence, Dr Helen Paynter. Plus, we reply to a listener who thinks we're a good example of Trinitarian love and how our ministry is #socrucial.

Jesus Christ is the Son of God and came to teach us a better way to be while reconciling us to God and each other in a way we could never do without Him. He also changed water into wine. Nice.
