Considering the Bible's saintly reputation, it packs surprising gore, horror, and depravity. As well as beauty, wisdom, and tedium. For millennia, the Bible has held Western culture captive to its strange stories of ancient people trying to figure out God.
Maybe you're not religious, but you're curious about the Bible. Maybe you grew up in church, but you're looking for a new way to relate to the Bible.
Welcome! We're Sam and Amanda. We're obsessed with the Bible. Sam is a liberal Presbyterian who became post-modern by studying the Bible too much. Amanda is a mystic naturalist Unitarian Universalist with Reformed and Evangelical roots. We are wrestling with what the Bible can mean in the midst of radical questioning, faith changes, depression, and self-doubt. We hope you'll join us as we appreciate, dissect, criticize, defend, and generally nerd out about the Bible from our progressive religious perspectives.

Profoundly Valuable Podcast

Theology is nothing without a diversity of perspectives, and two of the most beautiful and meaningful theological perspectives I’ve heard come from this podcast. I’m grateful for Sam and Amanda.

Theology for the Bible Nerd in all of us!

I love that Amanda and Sam challenge me on a Theological, intellectual, and even a moral level. As a Theology grad they also appeal to the Bible Nerd in me which I miss from my days in college. I also love that they are able to bring their own struggles and how they relate to stories in the Bible into focus. Thank you both!

Hugely helpful to those coming up and through reformed and conservative Christian views. Listen up friends, this is a helpful view.
