The Bible Line - August 2, 2011
This morning my 9 year old daughter asked me why God loved Jacob and not Esau. She went on to describe the different character of the brothers. Jacob being a deceiver and a cheater, yet Esau seemed to be more obedient and respectful to his parents. She asked, “Why didn’t God forgive Esau, and why does the Bible say God loved Jacob and hated Esau, how can God hate anyone?”

I was interested in your help with a situation we are involved with. The church my husband and I are involved in is getting ready to study The Story. It is supposed to be an overview of the Bible. We have started reading it so we would have an idea of the material. We are very uncomfortable with the material as it seems to remove and/or gloss over anything remotely controversial. We have yet to find any theologians that we trust who endorse it and the churches that we are aware of that have done it are not on the same page as we are theologically. I was just wondering if you had heard of it and/or had an opinion of it.
