Some years ago, we aired a series of Arabic radio Bible discussions under the title, God’s original purposes for the Hebrew nation. It was blessed with much lasting gos­pel fruit.

What is man (1): Are we alone in the universe?

The first of three edited extracts from Edgar Andrews’ new book, What is Man? Adam, alien or ape? It’s easy to confuse SETI with YETI because both relate to creatures that probably don’t exist.
