Chris Green – Sanctifying Interpretation
Chris Green is on the show to talk about how God is not saving us from interpretation, but through it - a process that can be "soul harrowing and purgative." Chris talks about problematic and more helpful models of Scripture and its interpretation, his appreciation for George MacDonald, approaches to troublesome texts, and we even have a brief poetry reading from the poetry collection Bigly. All these things and more await you in this one jam-packed episode on the second edition of his Sanctifying Interpretation.

A.J. Culp – Memoir of Moses
How is memory made and maintained in a community? Moreover, how can a community remember something they never witnessed? A. J. Culp walks us through recent turns in memory theory to explore how Deuteronomy, as a piece of literature, instantiates and reifies memory in Israel. We address misconceptions of memory as individualistic, how literature can form memory, and the use of memory for social identity. For Christians and Jews, the implications for their tradition's rituals and sacraments are manifest.

Hands down my favourite podcast!
If you want to be theologically provoked, challenged and intrigued, there is no better thing for you to listen to. An amazing window of insight into the world of biblical scholarship which introduces you to key discussions, concerns and contributors. All presented by a host of people who are brilliant, witty and inquisitive scholars in their own right. I’m so grateful for this resource!!
Making scholarly conversations accessible
I've been listening to OnScript for several years now, during college/seminary, and in my first stages of pastoral ministry. At college, it gave me a glimpse into the scholarly world behind the books and articles I was reading - a bit like going to a seminar with a visiting academic, but more accessible, entertaining, and easier to fit into the schedule. After college, it provides a really easy way to keep vaguely aware of what is currently going on in academic biblical studies and theology. The hosts are knowledgeable and engaging, and the episodes are always fun to listen to.
Good'un fer sure
As a co-host, can't recommend it enuf
