The Chronicler book jacketCombine a book, a webcast, and a series of podcasts by Church of the Brethren Old Testament scholars and writers, and you have a great recipe for a surprisingly energetic discussion on Chronicles. A series of podcasts on Chroniclespresented by Robert W. Neff, Frank Ramirez, and Steven Schweitzer can now be found through the Bethany Webcast Vault.

The podcasts, and a previously recorded ninety-minute webcast, follow the chapters of The Chronicler, one of the Covenant Bible Series books offered by Brethren Press. The webcast and the podcasts provide new information and fresh insights about Chronicles for exploration by individuals or groups. The webcast is also available in the Bethany Webcast Vault and can be viewed at any time.

Robert W. Neff is professor emeritus of Old Testament at Bethany Theological Seminary, former general secretary of the Church of the Brethren, president emeritus of Juniata College, and current associate for resource development at The Village at Morrison’s Cove. Writer and storyteller Frank Ramirez is president of the Brethren Journal Association and pastor of the Everett Church of the Brethren. Steven Schweitzer is academic dean and associate professor of Old Testament Studies at Bethany Theological Seminary, and author of Reading Utopia in Chronicles.

classMy wife Barbara and I first visited Bethany in June 2009. After spending two days meeting with faculty and staff I returned home even more uncertain. Did I really want to devote the time this program required? Was I willing to learn computer skills that didn't even exist when I finished college in 1972? Was I willing to make the eight-hour drive that would occasionally be necessary? Was this really what God was calling me to do at this time in my life? From the very beginning, I came as I am, but went not as I came. Little did I know how this Bethany tag line would time and time again ring true for my educational experience.
