The Stone Chapel Podcasts
Hosted by David Capes
.Scott Sager, Vice President for Church Services and a member of the Bible faculty at Lipscomb University, stopped by to talk about his new book, Jesus in Isolation: Lazarus, Viruses, and Us (Wipf & Stock, 2021) on “The Stone Chapel.” Although the book project began years before Covid 19 hit, it was the virus itself and subsequent isolation that sharpened Sager’s thinking about the book. Inspired by G. K. Chesterton, C. S. Lewis, and N. T. Wright in various ways, Scott takes us through a sustained meditation on the hinge episode in John’s Gospel, the resurrection of Lazarus. Punctuated with poetry throughout, Sager makes a cogent case for how the church needs poets in a day when soundbytes, Twitter and social media dominate the headlines. It is arranged so that people can use it as a study guide for 12 weeks in a small group.
