From Russia to Zondervan Academic

Katya Covrett

Katya Covrett, executive editor for Zondervan Academic, talks about her journey from Russia to Bible College translator to graduate student to become the face of Zondervan Academic.  She discussed the history and unique mission of the press.  She offers good advice for how to get published and avoid the mistakes authors make.   

To listen to the podcast (about 20 minutes), “The Stone Chapel,” click here.

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

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.

This will be the first podcast in a new series I am hosting called THE STONE CHAPEL.  If you want information about that, let me know.  It will appear soon on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other platforms.
