Customer Reviews

Reasonably Concerned

In general, I found this podcast very relevant and intreaguing, even though it got a bit more technical for me as a layman. Here are some specifics:
1. The pace could be a bit slower, as I am generally a slow reader ( and perhaps it applies to my listening traits).
2. Perhaps a little historical introduction to the gospel writers and where Luke stands among them chronologically, would be helpful.
3. The questions to the book author were very probing, relevant, and amusing as well, such as the question about Luke's anti-semitism and whether or not he had read Paul's letters.

McWhirter interview

Refreshing, insightful, professional look at historical motivations of Luke's messages. Very well done.

Ultimate Concerns

Really interesting discussions about recent religion scholarship.
