A Brief Conversation with the Founder of the Lanier Theological Library

Mark Lanier

Recently, I sat down with the founder of the Lanier Theological Library, Mark Lanier, on “The Stone Chapel.” We talked a bit about his vision and hopes for this unique research library, tucked away in Northwest Houston.

Mark and his sweet wife Becky love England and all things British so the library and grounds look a bit like a piece of Oxford has broken off and fallen into the sylvan setting of northwest Houston.

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

Meditating on the Law

Dr. Michael Graves

Dr. Michael Graves, Armerding Professor of Biblical Studies at Wheaton College, explores with David Capes how reading the Hebrew text of Psalm 1 leads us to a key background story in Joshua 1, and how both together shed light on faithfulness.

In this podcast she talks about how studying a text in its original language goes beyond words to the entire act of communication between author and audience.

Sound for Memory: Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 5

A Daily Dose of Greek

Dr. Robert Plummer,  the Collin and Eveyln Aikman Professor of Biblical Studies at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, started a free daily 2-minute screencast about five years ago designed to help pastors, seminary students, and others keep reading their Greek New Testaments. He describes how it has grown into thousands of archived episodes and expanded to do the same for Hebrew and Latin. There are Spanish versions of the Greek and Hebrew screencasts as well. Two to three minutes a day in the text. It’s like having a free personal trainer for your languages!
