Resurrection Logic

Dr. Bruce Chilton

Last year I had the great honor to talk with Dr. Bruce Chilton at the Lanier Theological Library about his new book Resurrection Logic: How Jesus’ First Followers Believed God Raised Him from the Dead. The conversation was so rich that we divided the podcast into parts 1 and 2.

Ambiguity in the Apologetics of C. S. Lewis

Terry Cokenour, a patron of the library, stopped by to talk with David Capes about his doctoral thesis at the London School of Theology.  Here is his title: “An Invitation to Thought: Ambiguities in the Apologetics of C. S. Lewis.”  Terry has been coming to the Lanier Theological Library since 2011 with a lengthy pause when he served as a missionary and church leader in Budapest, Hungary.  He talks about how he came to focus his research and his spiritual heart on the writings of C. S. Lewis and to love the mystery he finds in his writings.

Corinthian Wisdom–Dr. Tim Brookins

Tim Brookins, Associate Professor of Classics at Houston Baptist University, talks with David Capes regarding his book, Corinthian Wisdom, Stoic Philosophy, and the Ancient Economy (SNTS Monograph Series 159: Cambridge University Press, 2014.  He challenges recent scholarship and makes the claim that “the wise man” of 1 Corinthians is not a person of rhetorical prowess but a philosopher with a bent toward Stoicism.  They talk about the value of mirror-readings in biblical letters and the prevalence of Corinthian slogans in Paul’s letter.

We have a Book called ‘The Book’

Father John Behr

Patristic expert, Dr. John Behr (PhD, Oxford), 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.

Reading Scripture Allegorically

Father John Behr

Patristic expert, Father John Behr, likes to be provocative. Here is a recent conversation (15 minutes) I had with him which began with a provocative statement: “Unless we are reading Scripture allegorically, we are not reading it as Scripture.” You may not agree with his answer but he will certainly get you thinking. This is part two of a podcast we did together. When we met, Father Behr was in transition. moving from St. Vladimir’s Seminary in New York–a post he held for 25 years–to becoming Professor of Patristics at the University of Aberdeen. He ends the podcast making some recommendations about how a person might go about reading the Church Fathers.
