The Status of Women in Academic Publishing

Katya Covrett

Before the pandemic started, in January 2020, I sat down to talk with Katya Covrett, executive editor for Zondervan Academic, to discuss the status of women in academic publishing for our new podcast, “The Stone Chapel.” Katya has been at the center of recent discussions on the status quo and what she at Zondervan is doing to engage more women in academic publishing. While it is an issue across many fields, it is prominent in fields that touch in and around the mission of Zondervan academic. Though it has been a male-dominated enterprise, Katya has a strategy.

Tyndale House: Past, Present and Future

I want to introduce you to “The Stone Chapel” podcast which I host. It’s a podcast of the friends and staff of the Lanier Theological Library in Houston, TX. Recently, I sat down with Dr. Peter Williams, principal of Tyndale House, to talk about its past, present and future. Williams is a great fundraiser and scholar who raises Tyndale House into the consciousness of many scholars and donors alike.. They provide a wonderful research library and academic community to encourage scholars who are writing books, going on sabbaticals, or just need a fresh time to read a few books.

Torah for Living

by Mark Lanier

You have probably seen daily devotional books that deal with Psalms, Proverbs or the Gospels. But I doubt you have seen one inspired by the Torah, that is, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. How should Christians reads those texts? How do you find spiritual meaning and direction from the description of the high priest’s garment? Well, Mark Lanier, founder of the Lanier Theological Library, has shown us how to do just that in 366 Scripture readings taken directly from Torah. He stopped by to talk with me on “The Stone Chapel” about his newest book, published by 1845 Books, a division of Baylor University Press. It is an amazing book. I recommend it to you as you consider the new year.

Jesus in the Talmud

Joseph Shulam, Christian minister and Hebrew scholar who leads a messianic congregation in Jerusalem, shares how Jesus figures in the Talmud, a collection of rabbinic discussions from the 1st to the 5th centuries AD.  He argues the negative reports among the rabbis actually corroborate aspects of the biblical accounts in the Gospels.
