Last year I had the chance to meet Dr. John Behr (PhD, Oxford). He is a rock star among scholars. He is known around the world as an expert in the Church Fathers. In this episode of “The Stone Chapel” he tells the story of how he came to the Orthodox faith. After discussing some of the differences between the Orthodox and Protestant faiths, he proposes that one difference is the problem: “we have a book called ‘The Bible’ (‘the Book’). The fact that we divide it into two parts, the Old Testament and the New Testament, means that we miss something fundamental. This is part one of a two part conversation.

The Stone Chapel is a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, Texas. It is hosted by Dr. David Capes, Senior Research Fellow at the library and former faculty member at Houston Baptist University and Wheaton College. The purpose of the podcast is to bring to our audience great conversations from the world’s leading experts in theology, biblical studies, archaeology, Church history, the Dead Sea Scrolls, ethics, ministry, and a host of other topics close to the mission of the library.
The Lanier Theological Library is a magnet for scholars, church leaders and influencers. For the last ten years, it has welcomed hundreds of academics and church leaders from across the globe for public lectures, study, panel discussions, consultations, and encouragement.
