Barbara Brown TaylorThis month’s WJK Radio podcast has been posted, and I am all aflutter. Barbara Brown Taylor is one of my favorite spirituality writers, so it was a great honor to get to talk to her. You’ll be impressed with how I was actually able to carry on a conversation even while crowing inwardly, “I am interviewing BBT! I am interviewing BBT!”

OK, gushing complete. Sorry.

The specific focus is on her editorial role in WJK’s popular Feasting on the Word commentary series; she was a very hands-on co-editor for all 12 volumes, the last of which was published earlier this year. WJK has a number of side products in the feasting line, including the forthcoming Feasting on the Gospels commentaries and a multi-generational curriculum based on the Revised Common Lectionary.

In the interview we also talk a bit about her approach to writing and what she’s up to next. Check it out! –JKR

Friends, I will be offline until January 23 for a writing retreat. I’m bringing my computer, but the place where I am going doesn’t have email access, which is one of the reasons I love it. So if you are of a praying mind, please pray that this week is both productive and restful. I […]

Actually, no. That title was just a teaser. There really aren’t any fun moments in the Book of Lamentations, which is why I had to make my own with the Twible. As you’ve probably guessed, Lamentations is a bit of a downer. Walter Brueggemann has described the book as Israel’s post 9/11 wrestling. Just like […]
