    An Interview with Laurie Beth Jones about her new book: The Contessa Chronicles

    in Spirituality

    This week Laurie Beth is interviewed about her new book, "The Contessa Chronicles". While this is Laurie's latest book to be released, it is one that she has carried in her heart for many years.  It springs from pondering the many scriptures that don’t resonate with modern times and understanding. From questions that are raised and then left unanswered.  As a nun once asked in Berkeley, “Is God really just an old man, a young man, and a bird?”  Why are women so easily erased and condemned in scripture? Why are the Wisdom passages so overlooked?  Why is the Holy Spirit, presented as a feminine noun in Hebrew, so quickly reassigned a new gender in subsequent translations, leading to a male dominated culture in religion that belies common sense, as well as demographics?


    Meanwhile, where’s the fun?  The joy?  The vibrancy that exists in life and yet seems almost non existent in the stories we are told about God?


    Ultimately, Laurie Beth has come to believe two major things. One is that the Bible is a Love Story, largely of unrequited love.  Two. That Jesus was a family man in the very largest sense.  He spoke constantly about the love he had for his father. He called us his brothers and sisters. With his dying breath he asked that his mother be loved and cared for after he was gone. He invited us to come home with him, and feast at the banquet table. He said he would send the Holy Spirit to finish the work he started.


    And even in Revelations, “The Spirit and the Bride say ‘Come.’”  The very real possibility of a wedding exists, even though Armageddon has gotten a lot more air time.


    And so we present to you, The Contessa Chronicles.  A new imagining of how it might have been, and maybe even, really is, if we are open to tasting some new wine, and are willing to saddle up our own horses for the ride.

    Lisa Harper joins Laurie Beth Jones on The Path

    in Spirituality

    Laurie Beth is thrilled to welcome Lisa Harper to her show this morning.  They will be talking about Women of Faith, Lisa's new book, "Stumbling into Grace", and why Lisa thinks church should be more like an NA (Narcotics Anonymous) meeting.
    Rarely are the terms hilarious storyteller and theological scholar used in the same sentence, much less used to describe the same person…but then again, Lisa Harper is anything but stereotypical! She has been lauded as a gifted communicator, whose writing and speaking overflows with colorful pop culture references that connect the dots between the Bible era and modern life. Her style combines sound scriptural exposition with easy-to-relate to anecdotes and comedic wit.
    Best-selling author and pastor Max Lucado calls Lisa one of the “best Bible tour guides around,” and speaker Priscilla Evans Shirer adds, “If anyone can help us to hear, understand and receive the truth of Scripture it is Lisa Harper. Her God-given ability to not merely teach the Word but package it in a way that stirs the heart and calls to action is incomparable. When she speaks ears perk up!”
    She’s written nine books including Holding Out For a Hero: A New Spin on Hebrews; A Perfect Mess: Why You Don’t Have to Worry About Being Good Enough For God and Untamed: How the Wild Side of Jesus Frees Us to Live and Love With Abandon. She also served as a key contributor to the Becoming Devotional Bible for Women and as a columnist for Today’s Christian Woman magazine.
