Just listened to The Alchemist, The Strangers, and The Volunteers

I’m not sure what I was expecting. Whatever it was, this exceeded my expectations.

I already find the account of Ruth to be soo full! It has every plot element a story could need: tragedy, conflict, history, redemption, and, of course, meaningful impact on the future with ties to the past. All of this contained in very few chapters.

The narrator seemed to do his due diligence and take great care of some of time period details, as well as realistic, grounded treatment of the figures. Not far removed, two dimensional people who spoke in thees and thous. But people who chewed on barley. People who pushed hair back out of their faces.

The narrator has great timbre and the phrases, comparisons, and metaphors he uses to coax meaning into a moment add much richness to the experience.

This podcast is a must!!!

If you're a Christian or not the way he tells these stories grasps and holds your attention. I can imagine what the artists was like as a kid. Around a bon fire. But seriously his vocabulary and the curating of music for the show all becomes one amazing story to hear. He goes behind the message and looks for the back story and fills inmost if not all the blanks of "well I wonder why that happened?" That are historically there. I truly appreciate this podcast as it gives me great opportunity to speak to others about the Bible not only with my kids butbelivers and non believers alike. It's an amazing tool for growth in biblical stories in my opinion my favorite had to be the story Jeremiah. As he tells the story I can see it happening... Amazing amazing podcast!

Imagine wrapping the poetry and beauty of story around the reality of a living God—it’s better than a bacon wrapped jalepeno popper baby! It may get spicy, but you’re gonna like it!
