Time for another podcast recommendation!
This time it's for Robert M. Price's show The Human Bible. It's a show where theologian Dr. Robert M. Price discusses topics in biblical criticism and answers listener questions using his vast knowledge of biblical and Christian history. Best of all, he comes from a secular perspective, understanding the text as a human creation, not one inspired by a god. And yet as a former Baptist pastor he has insight into the biblical literalist mindset.
In my formative years I was a great fan of Reginald Finley Sr.'s The Infidel Guy Show. Robert Price's "Bible Geek" episodes of that show were some of my favourites — his great voice, his quiet sense of humour, his breadth of knowledge. His new show here is much the same, though unfortunately without Reginald Finley's irreverent co-hosting.
I've only got an amateur interest in biblical criticism, so I've got no way to assess whether this guy knows what he's talking about or is respected in his field, but he sure sounds like an expert.
