    At last, D.A. Carson and I have something in common!… Stodginess.

    Hey guys, I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how much I appreciate your podcast and site. Like Michael, critical theory and my studies in the humanities caused a huge crisis of faith in my life but God in His goodness has brought me back and has used your show to assist him. My background is in engineering but I recently was in the MaLit program at Northwestern University in Illinois but had to drop out for financial reasons. Basically I’m kind of attempting to become a lay-scholar in the humanities, primarily literature, and your show is very helpful in the process. God bless

    I’m so glad you’ve found our show helpful, Chris.

    Chris, stories like yours are the best reasons we do what we do online.

    (The worst, of course, is my own raging ego.)

    Hah, well said Nathan. One of the things I appreciate most about your show is that you are all highly educated yet show a surprising amount of humility which I find very rare in Christian intellectual circles. Also, you all show a great amount of fair handedness and grace when dealing with views you disagree with which is also very refreshing.

    On a different note, i couldn’t find the email on your site but I had two show recommendations for you:
    1) A show devoted to Erasmus I think would be great. Especially due to the fact that a lot of reformed Christians consider him to be a heretic, among the many other reasons that make him interesting and admirable.
    2) A show about the variety of great “christian” writers. Rangin from more orthodox writers like Chesterton and O’Connor, to eastern and/or heterodox writers like Tolstoy and Dostoevsky, and even writers with a more broken or conflicted relationship with Christianity like Dickinson and Baudelaire.

    Just a thought,

    I could easily imagine Farmer leading us through an O’Connor show or even a series based on O’Connor. I might just work up an Erasmus episode at some point, though I don’t know how broadly the other two have read in Erasmus. They’re some good ideas–keep on listening, and we might just make them happen!
