Author Launches Audio Visual Ebook

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 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.”

We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society.”  ipu cet admit card iit gate apcommercial annamalai university result axis bank mobile banking bits pilani result cheap car insurance provider ctet admit card cusatcat “[Kids] don't remember what you try to teach them.
