Since the days of the early church, Christians have struggled to understand the relationship between two seemingly contradictory concepts in the Bible: law and gospel. If, as the Apostle Paul says, the law cannot save, what can it do? Is it merely an ancient relic from Old Testament Israel to be discarded? Or is it still valuable for Christians today?

Not for everyone. Although he gets into some big important truths, it can be a tough hang if you’re not locked in to the subject. Very well researched and argued.

Since his creation, Batman has been many things: a two-fisted detective; a planet-hopping gadabout; a campy pop-art sensation; a pointy-eared master spy; and a grim and gritty ninja of the urban night. For more than three-quarters of a century, he has cycled from a figure of darkness to one of lightness and back again; he's a bat-shaped Rorschach inkblot who takes on the various meanings our changing culture projects onto him.

Weldon often tries to get in a fun accent in his role of panelist for NPR's Pop Culture Happy hour. He gives himself plenty of opportunities here in his excellent performance of his well thought out book. I've been a Batman nerd for quite a while and I was able to learn some history from this book, to laugh, and even , unexpectedly, to do some introspection on when I've tried to say "That's Not Batman!" (I've definitely said it in regards to Zack Snyder's take on film in Batman v Superman ugh). Two thumbs up. Definitely give this a listen whether you're a nerd or normal.

How did one man-a humble monk and Bible professor-spark a religious rebellion that changed the course of history? What made Martin Luther's theology so explosive in 16th-century Europe? How did this late-medieval man launch the Protestant Reformation and help create the modern world? And how should we think of him: hero or heretic, rebel or tormented soul? Find out the answer to these questions and more in this series of 24 engaging lectures.

I've listened to all but one of Cary's lecture series on audible and I have greatly enjoyed them all. They've really opened my mind to new old ways of thinking about my faith.
