Every year Mike attends the annual meetings of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS), the Institute for Biblical Research (IBR), the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) and the American Academy of Religion (AAR). This year Mike recorded short conversations with scholars, pastors, and other folks who were also attending. This episode is the first of two parts that shares those interviews with Naked Bible podcast listeners. Among those interviewed are theology professors Dr. Carl Sanders and Dr. Gerry Breshears; Danish Old Testament historian Dr. Jens Kofoed; New Testament scholar Dr. Darrell Bock; Mike’s first Bible professor, Dr. Ed Glenny; and Mike’s first pastor as a new Christian, Dr. Dave Burggraff.
