In this month’s Impolite Conversation, we talk to David Wheeler-Reed about his new book, Regulating Sex in the Roman Empire: Ideology, the Bible, and the Early Christians. And then Dan and Tim chat about what it means when politicians quote Scripture to make a political point. And in One Last Thing, Dan has been doing some reading of his own about the ancient world, but Tim just wants to strut his summer away.
Some of the things we talked about on this episode:
Dan’s OLT was Alberto Manguel’s book Homer’s The Iliad and The Odyssey: A Biography.
