In this special episode, we give Beth Allison Barr the floor.
Beth wanted to have a conversation with Scot McKnight about Biblical translations, how they come together, and how bias and agendas influence certain translations more than others (we're looking at you, ESV). We interviewed Beth in April about her brilliant book The Making of Biblical Womanhood. Beth has said numerous times that of all the questions about her book that she gets, most are about this topic.
Enjoy this brilliant conversation between two scholars who happen to also be incredibly fun. And check out the companion blog post here!
In this episode, we sampled Blade and Bow Whiskey made by the Stitzel Weller Distillery.
