Bible Talk Radio

Who is Lilith? Were the Israelites always monotheistic? What are demons and where did they come from? Why are priests celibate? These are the types of questions tackled by this show. Bible Talk seeks to build understanding of religious beliefs by studying the history and texts that created them. I'm not here to tell you whether or not God exists. I'm just here to tell you what other people think about Him, and where those beliefs come from.
