Maxwell Institute Podcast #157: Latter-day Saints in the French Imagination, with Corry Cropper, Daryl Lee, and Heather Belnap
In the nineteenth century, a fascination with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints made Mormons and Mormonism a common trope in French journalism, art, literature, politics, and popular culture. Heather Belnap, Corry Cropper, and Daryl Lee bring to light French representations of Mormonism from the 1830s to 1914, arguing that these portrayals often […]
It’s Christmas! This may feel like an awkward lesson to have in the discussion of the Old Testament, it’s at least how I felt. But in considering the topic more deeply, I can’t think of a better way to prepare for celebrating the Savior’s birth. We’ve spent the year reading the scriptures that He read […]
Maxwell Institute Podcast #156: Finding Christ in the Covenant Path, with Jennifer C. Lane
Finding Christ in the Covenant Path offers a fresh but faithful focus on the journey of covenants and discipleship through the double lens of ancient words and medieval images.

Maxwell Institute Podcast #155: Nostalgia as Jewish Religious Practice, with Rachel B. Gross
In 2007, the Museum at Eldridge Street opened at the site of a restored nineteenth-century synagogue originally built by some of the first Eastern European Jewish immigrants in New York City. Visitors to the museum are invited to stand along indentations on the floor where footprints of congregants past have worn down the soft pinewood. […]
Abide: Haggai and Zechariah
One of the most interesting days of my life took place a few years ago when I co-conducted a tour of the Jordan River Temple in Utah for non-Latter-day Saint specialists in American religion. As we walked from room to room, my co-tour guide, my second mission president, did his best to anticipate questions that […]
Consistently high quality
One of my favorite faith podcasts. I loved the interviews with brief theological introductions to Book of Mormon authors. Love the Abide series related to come follow me curriculum.
I hope you do more episodes with Christian Heal and others for NT 2023!
CES Letter Response Episodes Please
You should do a CES letter series of episodes where you go through each question, I’ve yet to hear any good answers.
A precious stone amongst many gems
ABIDE has the most eloquent intros and outros I’ve heard from any podcast. It is obvious to the listener, there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes. The intros are a masterful work of succinct summaries pulling out the most important elements, history, and and outlines of any given book in the Old Testament.
Many of the insights and conclusions have had me pondering for weeks after I listened. I especially remember and have captured much of the dialogue from the discussions in Psalms and Proverbs, and the beautiful, soul searching conclusion from Job!
These podcasts have become a must listen to for my weekly study. Thank you for all the time and energy you all put into producing these precious podcasts.
