Episode 11 of the PostConsumer Reports Podcast features Thom Blair, editor and translator of the Hebrew English Interlinear English Standard Version (ESV) of the Old Testament. Thom also works for Faithlife and Logos Bible Software. His Hebrew-English version of the ESV is quite frankly amazing. Essentially it features a line of the Hebrew text with another line of the exact English words directly underneath. Thom is a friend of mine and I am honored and astonished to know someone who has accomplished a project such as this. Thom has also been developing Bible study courses and video talks from prominent Bible Scholars that correspond with the different seasons of the church calendar.
Director/actor/writer David Leo Schultz is our first repeat guest on the PCR podcast. This time he is talking about his new film Brennan, which is an intimate character study of the author and speaker Brennan Manning (The Ragamuffin Gospel, Ruthless Trust). We get into the frustrations of making films that are not 100% family friendly with American Christian culture, the difficulties of portraying someone as enigmatic as Brennan Manning, and how we are all pretty messed up and desperately in need of God's grace.

Jeremiah Gibbs is the Chaplain/Director of the Lanz Center for Christian Vocation and Formation at the University of Indianapolis. In Episode 08 we discuss his book Apologetics After Lindbeck which asks what it means to defend and tell the story of the Christian faith in today's world. We talk about the current state of apologetics and what nebulous words like "post-liberal" and "post-conservative" and "post-foundational" might mean. You can find more of his writings at his website and blog: www.jeremiahgibbs.com.
