This week on the podcast we're starting a new series on the Bible. Once every month Sebastian Faust will be interviewing a different prominent thinker and scholar on a different book of the Bible. For our inaugural episode in this series, Sebastian talked with Dr. Robert Alter, a Hebrew language and comparative literature professor at the University of California, Berkeley. They'll discuss the literary nature of Genesis, the reason for the two creation stories, and Dr. Alter will share his deeply insightful thoughts about the relationship between Abraham and Isaac.
If you'd like to read more of Dr. Alter's work, you can find his writings on Amazon, including his translation of Genesis and his most recent book, Pen of Iron.
