I grew up in the American evangelical/fundamentalist homeschooling subculture, and while I walked away from Christianity in my early twenties, many of my friends from then didn’t. This podcast feels like the conversations with friends that I wish I could have been a part of. The hosts excellently articulate and explore many of the same questions I also faced (e.g. power versus goodness in the Job episode).
Entertaining content for those who want to take a more critical look at the Bible. I personally appreciate this content because it gives a more sensible and sane perspective on the formative Bible stories heard at a younger (and more gullible) age. This podcast is a healing ointment and a good time!
...read these ancient texts with context and understanding of cultural references from the times they were written in? What gives them the right to articulate the holes in these old stories? Who do they think they are providing such thoughtful exegesis of the writings while providing fun banter to go along with? Ok, I’ll bite...
The best godamned version of the Bible! Drunk Sunday school - I’m in. So great, please make more episodes, can’t wait to see what’s next!
Growing up in church, I literally had these stories memorized and had so many of the questions mentioned here. This podcast is awesome and funny and I believe will be a great tool for “the Word of God is literal” mistaken culture. Congrats on your pod! I’ll be waiting for new episodes every week!
Starting right near the beginning in Genesis 6, Tori Williams Douglass and Justin Gentry's podcast is straightforward and accurate to the text while being laugh out loud funny at times. A must-listen for anyone who wants to know more about the Bible.
