B4NP Podcast Episode 5: “That Topic that Isn’t Going Anywhere Anytime Soon: Science and the Bible,” with Mike McHargue
Welcome to episode 5 with our guest “Science Mike” McHargue, author of Finding God in the Waves: How I Lost My Faith and Found It Again Through Science, and host of the insanely popular “The Liturgists” podcast. Mike is utterly guileless about his own walk of faith, and is a major go-to voice for many who struggle with an ancient faith in a modern world.
Welcome to episode 4 with beloved Old Testament scholar Walter Brueggemann on the Bible and the challenge of the Mainline Church to reclaim it. We talk about other things, too, like the fact that Walter is WAY younger than some of the people in the Old Testament he writes about.
Episode 3 is ready to go! We’re very pleased to have Rachel join us. She’s done more than many I know to encourage in young people an honest and exploratory faith.

Here is episode 2 of The Bible for Normal People podcast, “A Contemplative View of the Bible” with Richard Rohr.
Because we are a full-service podcast, and we care about you deeply, and would not want you to do any extra clicking, we’ve embedded the episode below. Of course, it is also available wherever podcasts are normally streamed, like iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher, and Podbean.
A couple of production notes. First, Jared and I decided to post episodes each week for 4 or 5 weeks and then take a week off. This is a change from the earlier announcement that we would publish an episode every two weeks.
Second, we will soon have a landing page for the podcast so you can find them easily. Until then, we ask that you rough it.
A sneak peek ahead, next week’s guest is Richard Rohr on a contemplative approach to the Bible. The following week we’ll be talking with Rachel Held Evans and the evolution of faith.
