What happens when humanity and the Bible collide?

Living and Effective, the new podcast from Christianity Today and the Christian Standard Bible, looks for answers to hard questions and finds the often overlooked ways that the Bible accomplishes God's plan in the world.

Host Richard Clark (podcast producer and editor at Christianity Today) talks with historians, theologians, and other experts to uncover the surprising role of the Bible in critical moments of human history, and engage with tough questions:

How could people on both sides of the Civil Rights Movement use scripture to make their case?

Why did so many American theologians falter on the issue of slavery?

Was Bonhoeffer decision to join the conspiracy to kill Hitler biblical?

By confronting these issues and more, this podcast series takes listeners on a journey through the Bible's role as living and effective in the world and challenges our assumptions about culture and Scripture.

Really enjoyed this podcast. Looking forward to more.

A new standard in Christian podcasting

This podcast promised to be great with co-producer Nick Rynerson involved, but it surpassed my expectations. The show cuts through clichés to artfully demonstrate why the Bible matters and how it’s use and authority have weathered the dynamics of history.

Excellent

Informative, well researched and thought provoking. My only complaint: not enough episodes! Looking forward to the new year and the topics Richard chooses to discuss.
