  • Daniel Hawk – The Violence of the Biblical God

    I (Matt L) have been wrestling with the topic of violence in Scripture for a while, and has returned to Dan Hawk's Berit Olam commentary on the book of Joshua.

  • Jon Levenson – Resurrection and the Restoration of Israel

    Jon Levenson's Resurrection and the Restoration of Israel (Yale, 2006) is one of the books I (Matt) most recommend to my students and colleagues. It models biblical scholarship that is exegetically adept, holds the big picture, understands the history of interpretation, and is genuinely creative. Dru and I had the privilege of sitting down with Jon Levenson--a favorite on the show--to talk through this theme of vital importance to Jews and Christians.
