A conversation with a professor of biblical studies

Sorry. I just couldn’t think up a better title to this post because this 24-minute interview touched on many topics, including:

  • The reliability of the Old Testament’s accounts of key historical events, for example the conquest of Canaan;
  • Reading the Old Testament in light of the New Testament;
  • The violence in the Old Testament;
  • How reading the Old Testament can be good news for women given its patriarchy;
  • Caring for creation and the less fortunate;
  • What the key idea of the Old Testament is.

Head on over to the CPX website to listen to a man with an Aussie accent interview one with a Scottish accent on a variety of topics relating to the Old Testament.
