Several years ago, my friend Tom Jones decided to produce a podcast that would encourage listeners to engage the Scriptures through thoughtful questions. The goal was to help us see that sometimes having good, unanswered questions is just as helpful to our faith as well-crafted sermons that pose to solve every riddle of the Christian life.
Tom loves a good conversation, especially about the Bible. He invited me to join him in this venture, focusing our conversation on the gospel of Mark. I'm really proud of Tom's work. I think the podcast captures the spirit of what we wanted: two guys wrestling with the ambiquities and teasing nuances of the loaded story that we call "the gospel according to Mark."
Anyway, we got about halfway through the gospel when Tom had to set the podcast aside for more pressing, important matters (he told me it takes several hours--I think he said at least 6 hours--to edit every half-hour episode). Now, after a five-year hiatus, the podcast is back. We've already recorded several conversations and Tom has posted two newly edited episodes. I've included the link in the lower right-hand corner of this blog in case you want to take a listen. You can subscribe to the podcast via iTunes as well.
