Recognise the importance of the Bible to Christians.
There are 2 main parts - the old testament and the new testament. The Bible offers 'wise words' to Christians.
It tells them about what God is like. It also tells a ‘big story’ of God’s dealings with human beings: God loves humans and created a wonderful world for people (creation); humans disobey God and go their own way (‘the Fall’); God sends his Son, Jesus (incarnation) to save people – to bring them back to God (salvation).
