So glad Ari is back!

I have been missing Ari terribly for the last 7 months! I loved the new format with Nate Buzolic, one of the heroes of our time. Both Ari and Nate are brilliant, offering up insights that are so new and fascinating. This interfaith collaboration is exactly what we need right now.

First listen today: Cool, energetic, relevant

Was looking for Bible Project and came across this podcast’s interview with Jon. The opening music of this pod made me emailed and lean in. Ari’s warm and modern opening added to my delight. The conversation was awesome - informative, engaging and relevant. About The Bible and how to read it and how to make it accessible for everyone today. Looking forward to more listening at GFE! Wow. Good companion to The Bible Project? Hope so!

Not enough stars for this podcast

A year ago I found Good Faith Effort after reading one of Rabbi Lamm’s “Why read the Bible in Hebrew” Twitter threads and quickly became obsessed. Over the next several months I listened to every episode, was introduced to dozens of amazing podcast guests and added to my Amazon cart at an embarrassing speed. Rabbi Lamm’s insight and optimism has brought me back over and over and I’ve recommended him to everyone around me to the extent that he’s jokingly referred to in our house as Rabbi guru Ari Lamm. On October 3, 2023, I had finally listened to every GFE episode. Little did I know what lie ahead. I anxiously look forward to the day when the podcast returns and pray for Rabbi Lamm in the meantime because more than ever I’m convinced that we need the power of the Bible to illuminate the most important conversations in society, politics, pop culture and beyond.
