Welcoming the many voices of the Bible: Robert Williamson, Jr.
Let’s face it - some parts of the Bible get more attention than the others.
Our guest, Robert Williamson, reminds us that these overlooked portions of the Old Testament contain important wisdom and reminders of our obligations to the least of these among us.
In this wide-ranging conversation, we are invited to read again, or for the first time, these Forgotten Books of the Bible.
