    Tom answers listener questions about the Old Testament. Can the truly trust the Old Testament? When was it all written? Is the Old Testament more spiritual metaphor or natural history?

    #213 Which Bible Translation is the best one? (Replay)

    Listeners ask questions on which Bible translations we should deem as the best ones and which ones we should use on a daily basis. What makes a good translation, why doesn’t Tom capitalise ‘holy spirit’, and what does he make of Pope Francis ‘changing’ the Lords’ Prayer? Tom also discusses the process and thinking behind his own translation of the New Testament in ‘The Bible For Everyone’.

Fantasy Fiction Fan ,

Very Inspired and Thorough

I have learned so much about the meaning of scripture through the extensive knowledge of Tom Wright. There are always a few questions about verses that seem as though they could go either way. Tom helps clarify these often difficult and confusing topics. Justin Brierley helps select the questions with his own knowledge and experience to help make a well balanced show and allow Tom time to dig deeper into the subject. I absolutely love how personable this show is and feel as if I’m sitting on their sofa joining in on the conversation.

NT Wright

Over the last couple of years, I have become a HUGE fan of Dr. Wright!! I have learned so much from him about the Scriptures and have grown closer to God through his podcasts and videos. Thank you for sharing these with us!

Good thoughtful show

Very good listen, but they stopped putting out new shows about a year ago and they’ve all been repeats since then. I do enjoy the variety of questions and expertise and insight given to them all. Wish the show would come back
