Episode: Grab a beer & lawn chair as Matt Lynch & Dru Johnson discuss your questions at this sizzlin’ summer theology barbecue. Matt & Dru talk about Dru’s imaginary friend(s), signing books, Christians and the law, David’s failures, God’s holiness, the ideas we think need to die, and other stuff. We also have an unplanned, and altogether impressive, call-in with Chris Tilling. Chris was grilling sausage when we spontaneously called him to answer questions about Paul, turning an otherwise officey conversation into a rollicking theological barbecue. Pardon Matt’s poor sound quality in this episode. A driver problem … blah, blah, blah, meant he ended up recording with his laptop mic. Also, there’s some serious crackling when we Skype in Chris for a few minutes.
Chris Tilling Theologizing at the Grill: In this episode, Chris Tilling attempts to turn the grill into a lectern (or is it the other way around?).
Books: During the discussion on the ‘Paul within Judaism’ movement, Tilling refers to Mark Nanos, co-editor of a recent volume, Paul within Judaism (Fortress, 2015). Nanos’ book comes recommended, but he meant to refer to Daniel Boyarin, who has written books on Paul and Judaism, like A Radical Jew (Univ California Press, 1997). Check ’em both out and let us know what you think!
