RHLSTP with Richard Herring

RHLSTP 251 - Francesca Stavrakopoulou

#251 Christ, the Child Killer - Richard is a the Corn Exchange in Exeter, a town famous for the the most comical suicide bomb of all time. And Richard is talking religion with Biblical scholar, Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou.

They try to ascertain who wrote the Bible, what Jesus got up to in the bits that didn't make it into the book, whether anyone in the Bible actually existed, whether gods have genitalia, if God was married, why Eve was Adam's second wife, whether being a woman or an atheist is a bigger handicap for a Biblical scholar and why St Paul had the wrong idea about sex during the Apocalypse. Plus the logistics of Noah's Ark and the craziest bits in the Bible.

Check out Francesca's book God: An Anatomy, fully illustrated. Yup, even that bit.
