Terrific show has your guest ever considered the relationship between Biblical and legal hermeneutics? It seems to me that the rise of “liberal/activist” legal theory on the bench tracks very closely with the decline of traditional hermeneutics in the mainline protestant denominations. I would also be curious if he has considered the link between the “living constitution theory and the more flexible / imaginative hermeneutics of the Jewish Midrash.

Outstanding show…one of the most stimulating in quite some time…and I have been listening almost from the beginning. I seldom make comment or observation, but want to comment y’all for the show. It has been a total blessing to watch it develop.

Continue the good work while keeping tough, tender, and teachable for Jesus’ sake and the kingdom’s advance
