TBTMSOn Monday I had the the good pleasure and fun of being interviewed by the fine people at Back to Red, a new podcast hosted by Tim Ivey and Eric Nobrega (Nobe).

We talked for an hour or so about The Bible Tells Me So: Why Defending Scripture Has Made Us Unable to Read It–both about the book itself and pushing some important issues a bit further.

Tim asked some great questions. Nobe, however, thought it would be appropriate to wear a Red Sox hat–I have to assume on purpose–and I had a hard time moving past my tribalism and listening to anything he said. Thankfully, we had trouble with the video feed and had to cut to audio only, thus sparing all of us the unbearable cognitive dissonance of a Red Sox fan being insightful.

Regardless, I had a wonderful time connecting via Skype with two kindred spirits inbacktored_logo1 Wisconsin sitting across from each other at a dining room table over a couple of beers. I’m pretty sure that’s how theological discussions are supposed to happen, even if virtually.

Hope you like the conversation.
