The Bob Edwards Show, Hal Taussig and Gene Weingarten, March 28, 2013

Everyone knows that the Bible is the top best-selling book in history. In part, that status is achieved through a shotgun spread of disparate versions, translations and adaptations for all walks of life - and at least two dozen retellings for children, some with superheroes. Most of those versions are not based on new scholarship, but that was the genesis of “A New New Testament: A Bible for the 21st Century Combining Traditional and Newly Discovered Texts.” Bob talks with the editor, Hal Taussig, a pastor and professor who teaches at Union Theological Seminary in New York.

Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows that the Bible is the top best-selling book in history. In part, that status is achieved through a shotgun spread of disparate versions, translations and adaptations for all walks of life - and at least two dozen retellings for children, some with superheroes. Most of those versions are not based on new scholarship, but that was the genesis of “A New New Testament: A Bible for the 21st Century Combining Traditional and Newly Discovered Texts.” Bob talks with the editor, Hal Taussig, a pastor and professor who teaches at Union Theological Seminary in New York.

Then, Gene Weingarten is so good at what he does that he’s won a Pulitzer… twice. As a feature writer for the Washington Post, Weingarten muses about whatever strikes his fancy. One of his most well-known pieces was about a stunt he set up with the violin virtuoso, Joshua Bell. Weingarten stationed Bell outside of a busy metro stop to see if anyone noticed. Hardly anyone did. Weingarten talks with Bob about that and many of his other memorable stories from a new collection titled The Fiddler in the Subway. [Broadcast Date: March 28, 2013]
