The Paulcast

The Paulcast, curated by Kurt Willems, is a new podcast devoted to the study of the most famous Apostle. He's been read to justify almost every agenda. People have reacted against such agendas and have let go of any hope that Paul is anything more than a misogynistic chauvinist. But who is Paul, really? What if Paul was revolutionary? What if Paul's letters were read in a world where his ideas were dangerous? What if Paul actually proclaimed world-changing news unlike anyone had before? In The Paulcast, Kurt Willems looks at issues pertaining to relevant scholarship, (radical) new perspectives on Paul, Jewish and Roman contexts for understanding his letters, important Pauline scholars and books, and Paul's ongoing relevance for regular folks today. In addition, Kurt will occasionally interview important voices from a variety of perspectives who will help us wrestle with the major questions that come out of the study of the historical Paul.

This is an interview with new author, Alice Connor. Her book, Fierce: Women of the Bible and Their Stories of Violence, Mercy, Bravery, Wisdom, Sex, and Salvation, seeks to excavate the neglected stories of women in biblical tradition. 

Walter Brueggemann says that... "The “old, old story” concerns “All the king’s men” or “All the president’s men.” The “new, new song” is about all the women who belong to the coming realm of liberty and justice. Alice Connor is a skillful artist who knows how to transpose old, old stories into new, new songs. In her lively imagination the old old stories do not stay old. They are powerfully and accessibly new and contemporary for our time and place. Connor knows that “feminism” is about power. She shows how these ancient stories are filled with powerful futures."

We chat about Paul's church ladies and other biblical themes, as well as the journey from idea to book.

Catch up with Alice at her website: Fierce Ass Women.

In this episode, Greg Boyd chats with Kurt Willems about spiritual warfare in Paul and others. This is a pastoral and theological conversation, more so than an issue focused only on the historical Paul. But, from time to time, these conversations are fun as well!
