Over at The Tentative Apologist, Randal Rauser just posted a podcast interview with me on the Bible and evolution. The interview happened a couple of weeks ago at the Society of Biblical Literature meeting in Baltimore. He jumped me when I wasn’t looking, dragged me into a warehouse, tied me to a chair, and stuck a recorder in my face and told me to start talking.

Oh wait. No. That wrong. That was something else.

Actually, he asked me a few weeks ago if I could make some time for a short interview while we were both in the same place, and I was more than happy to do it. I can’t for the life of me remember what I said, but I am willing to bet it’s nothing out of the ordinary (for me) with a predictable range of reactions sure to come.

For those of you who might not know Randal, he is a systematic and philosophical theologian who studied under Colin Gunton at Kings College, London. He is presently associate professor of historical theology at Taylor Seminary (Edmonton, AB) and has written several books, including You’re Not As Crazy As I Think: Dialogue in a World of Loud Voices and Hardened OpinionsFaith Lacking Understanding: Theology ‘Through a Glass, Darkly’, and The Swedish Atheist, the Scuba Diver and Other Apologetic Rabbit Trails.

If anything, I think we need to help Randal think of more creative book titles.

Part two of the interview will air in a few weeks.
