Strength to Strength welcomed Glenn Martin to discuss the story of the twelve spies who were sent into Canaan.

When they returned, Joshua and Caleb were ready to face the giants and conquer: “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.”

The other ten said: “There we saw the giants… and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight.” What was the root of their “grasshopper syndrome?” too risk-averse? or faithlessness?

An interactive question-and-answer period follows.
