Rev Dr David Bell recently converted his popular book In The Beginning: Adam and Eve and Evolution into something much more. It is something he believes will resonate well with people of all ages.
"It's a different take on an audio-visual-Ebook (AVE). In a nutshell, the text from the book is on screen, while the original actors are there reading it out."
Originally written as a guide for young people making the transition from high school to tertiary studies, it went into a second edition and attracted favourable comment in various church contexts. Its initial print run sold out almost entirely through word of mouth marketing. Passionately researched from his theological work and experience as a Methodist Minister, the book seeks to address some of the more pressing questions.
In the revised second edition, Prof Emeritus John Morton wrote in a new preface, “Rev Dr. David Bell’s In the Beginning ... Adam and Eve and Evolution is a deeply engrossing study of the opening chapters of Genesis. Original in arrangement, it is set out at two levels that can be read separately. The first is a dialogue between three members in a youth group. It is enriched with imaginative pen illustrations by Melissa Martyn.
“The dialogue is likely to be read straight through without putting down. But interleaved with it, on accompanying right hand pages, is a deeper material that may not be so easy to read; - it would be inadequate if it were. But in a cross-reading with the dialogue to which it applies different age and intellectual groups will enjoy tackling both together.”
Dr. Bell has made the AVE free for download through his website kiwiconnexion.nz and hopes that its availability online can reach a new audience. There's a link on the login page
"People have developed a strong affinity with the internet in their search for knowledge and understanding. There is also a large expectation today that educational books and resources should be free.”
