Job’s Repentance with Amy Nicole Allan

Amy Nichole Allan, adjunct Professor of Theology at Trinity Christian College, is working on her Wheaton Graduate School PhD dissertation, “Anthropomorphic and Anthropopathic Depictions of God in Hosea, Amos, Micah, and Zephaniah: Rhetoric, Interpretation, and Theology.” In this episode of Exegetically Speaking, Amy weighs carefully the last thing Job says in response to God’s long speech in chapters 38-41. Is Job 42:6 about ­self-loathing, or a retraction of Job’s words?

Curse or Consequences? with John Walton

Genesis 3

John Walton, Wheaton College

Dr. John Walton, Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton Graduate School, author of many books and articles relating to the background, literature, and theology of the Old Testament, has contributed several episodes to this podcast. Currently, he is collaborating with his Wheaton colleague, Dr. Aubrey Buster, in writing a commentary on Daniel. In this conversation with David Capes, he gives some fresh and helpful attention to some of the language that God addresses to the rebellious actors of Genesis 3. Consequences of their acts bring, among other things, anxiety about conception and a desire for spousal support in the form of domestic stability and order.

Parables from the Pandemic with Christine Galib

Dr. Christine Galib

Dr. Christine Galib is a reader, a writer, an educator, and an entrepreneur.  Perhaps more importantly, she is a seeker of Truth.  In this podcast, she talks with David Capes about her new book, Parables from the Pandemic: Holding onto Hope in a Hurting World.   She dedicated it to all who passed away and all who suffered loss as a result of the Covid pandemic.  Dr. Galib has written twelves parables—one a poem, one a tweet!—that illustrate the harshness of this fallen world and yet speak Truth and offer hope.  Inspired by Dante Alighieri, John Milton, Jesus, C. S. Lewis and other wise writers, Christine helps us understand that “sometimes, and perhaps most times, fiction teaches us more truths than fact does.” To know more about Christine Galib, go to her website: www.christinegalib.com.

The “Book” of Kings and Exilic Identity with Nathan Lovell

Dr. Nathan Lovell

Nathan Lovell, senior lecturer in Old Testament and Hebrew at George Whitefield College in Cape Town, South Africa is an Australian who has lived in South Africa with his wife for the past ten years. He joins David Capes on “The Stone Chapel Podcast” to talk about his book, The Book of Kings and Exilic Identity: 1 and 2 Kings as a Work of Political Historiography (T. & T. Clark).  Initially, our books 1 & 2 Kings were one book, and they share common themes and concerns. Written from exile this “book” looks back over 400 years of the history of Israel and Judah to ask a single question: what does it mean to be God’s people in exile? With no temple, no land, a broken covenant, and no king how ought they envision their lives as God’s people? In fact, many exiles questioned whether they were still God’s people, yet the book of Kings ends with a glimmer of hope.  The Davidic king is released from his confinement and sits at the table of the Babylonian king.  The Davidic line has not come to an end.  God has not failed his exiled people.
