Video that chronicles a walk along the San Antonio River Walk. I took all footage with an iPhone, hand-held while walking (which accounts for the shakiness of some footage). This is my very first attempt at putting together a video with an iPhone, and I have a LOT to learn.

Good News

3 steps to a new life...

Why is it that so many bad things happened during the Old Testament? And why does the New Testament seem to be so much more positive than the Old Testament? The Good News Bible Study (by Rob Vanya) is designed to provide some answers to these and other Bible-related questions by presenting a condensed account of the most important teachings of the Bible.

The study is short, straightforward, to-the-point, and easy to understand. I put together the Good News Bible Study mostly because I know so many people who seldom (or never) attend any type of church, and who know little or nothing about the Bible. Think of it as a brief primer, an intro, a starting point. However, even those who are familiar with the Good Book can greatly benefit by reading the Good News Bible Study.
