Carmen Imes – Why Sinai Still Matters

Episode: Carmen Imes has been on a podcast tour, and we’re thrilled that she joined us for this episode to discuss her book Bearing God’s Name: Why Sinai Still Matters. We discuss the often misunderstood prohibition on taking God’s name in vain, the relevance of Sinai for Christians, and much more.

Guest: Dr. Carmen Imes is Associate Professor of Old Testament at Prairie College in Alberta. She’s the author of Bearing YHWH’s Name at Sinai: A Re-Examination of the Name Command of the Decalogue (Eisenbrauns). Her book Bearing God’s Name: Why Sinai Still Matters (IVP) is a distillation of her academic volume for a lay audience. Her forthcoming book is Reading the Psalms with Augustine and Friends. Carmen is an active member of the Evangelical Theological Society, the Institute for Biblical Research, and the Society of Biblical Literature. Although she enjoys hanging out with other Bible geeks at conferences, her passion is to help the Bible come alive for laypeople. Carmen blogs at and writes regularly for The Well, InterVarsity’s blog for women in the academy and professions. She enjoys speaking in church settings and for retreats and other events.
