Daniel Master, Tel Shimron

Dr. Daniel Master, Wheaton College

Daniel Master (PhD, Harvard University), Professor of Archaeology at Wheaton College, talks with David Capes about how he became an archaeologist.  He has spent much of his career digging up, processing, and writing archaeological reports on Ashkelon.  In recent days he and his dig partners from various institutions have turned their trowels to Tel Shimron, a large archaeological site just north of the Jezreel Valley about 8 miles west of Nazareth.  Despite Covid-19, the excavation had a full season in 2021.  If you want more information about Tel Shimron, check out the website: www.telshimronexcavations.com.  Dr. Master is always looking for volunteers.  If you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at archaeology, why not spent three or six weeks in Israel next summer? It’s hard work, but it’s worth it!

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.

These podcasts as well as the Lanier library and the Stone Chapel are generously underwritten by Mark and Becky Lanier and the Lanier Theological Library Foundation.  If you have questions or comments, please be in touch: Email david.capes@lanierlibrary.org

Theology on the Web

Rob Bradshaw’s full time job is librarian at Spurgeon’s College in London. But he also has a passion for making theology available on the Internet.

Here is the website you need to know:

https://theologyontheweb.org.uk

Rob has digitized 40,000 articles from dozens and dozens of journals.  Some you have heard of.  Some you have not.  But he has done his due diligence to contact the authors and/or their heirs to make sure he has permission to put their work on the web so that people across the world can see it.

In this time of Covid-19 when libraries are closed and resources are scarce, it is great to have access to these articles.  They are cross-referenced by author, publication, topic, etc.

Rob has articles on a variety of disciplines: theology, church history, Old Testament, New Testament, and archaeology.  The website above mentioned above curates and organizes the entire collection of digitized articles.

Now, Rob does this on the side, as a gift to scholars, pastors, and students.  Access to the articles are free, but if you’d like to help him with some of the expenses, leave some money in the tip jar before you go.
