Dale Ralph Davis on Joshua (Re-release)
In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, Nancy sits down with Dale Ralph Davis at First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina, where, in his “retirement” he serves as minister in residence or, as senior pastor Derek Thomas calls him, “the preacher of the night.” Davis is a long-time pastor and former professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary in Jackson, Mississippi. Davis's book, _No Falling Words_, has long been a must-have commentary on Joshua. We sat down with him as he was reworking his messages on Joshua for an upcoming conference to talk about “the strange God” of Joshua as well as: * old promises fulfilled in Joshua; * the meaning of the land; * God’s command to destroy the Canaanites; * the unlikely recipient of mercy; * the grace demonstrated and response to grace commanded in Joshua. Here are some additional audio resources that you may find helpful in preparing to teach Joshua: * Overview of Joshua by Dale Ralph Davis * David Jackman messages on Joshua * John Woodhouse messages of Joshua * Entering into the Promises series at All Souls Langham Place * TGC sermon resources on Joshua For further study, here are some books you may find helpful, including titles from Crossway, the sponsor of Help Me Teach the Bible: * _No Falling Words_ by Dale Ralph Davis * _Joshua: An Exegetical and Theological Exposition of Scripture_ (New American Commentary) by David Howard * _Joshua: People of God's Purpose_ by David Jackman * _Joshua and the Flow of Biblical History_ by Francis A. Schaeffer

#95 – God in the Dark Places of Genesis with Tish Harrison Warren
This episode we are joined by Tish Harrison Warren. Tish is a priest in the Anglican Church in North America and is the author of Liturgy of the Ordinary and the forthcoming book Prayer in the Night (coming in January, preorder now). She is a monthly columnist for Christianity Today and you can find her articles in the New York Times, Religious News Service, Comment Magazine, and many other places. On this episode Tish and the crew discuss the following: * In Genesis 3 we find out that humanity rebels against God and in doing so, finds themselves experiencing separation from God. This is the reality we are born into, that we inherit...so let’s start at a high level: Is it possible to find God in a dark world? * After the fall, Adam and Eve are exiled from the garden, setting up this mega theme of exile throughout the bible: What is exile and is God with us in it? How do we seek and find God when in exile? * As the story moves forward, brokenness takes on different contours: The story of Cain and Abel we see murder, bloodshed, hate...do we approach God differently in the midst of a violent world? * Prior to Noah, it appears that the world has unraveled into great unrighteousness and evil: How can we pray when we feel doubt that the world around us can ever be made whole again? * When we get to the Tower of Babel, we find the people scattered, divided, and confused: In what way if any does prayer not only bridge the gap between us and God but between us and the other?
