#12 The Book of Esther

In honor of the upcoming holiday of Purim...here is Episode 12a of the Holy Madness!

Join us as we explore a little bit about the holiday, and do a quick overview of the central book about it - the Book of Esther. We tease out the farcical tone it is written in, identify many of its comedic elements, and identify some of its main themes. (Those themes will be more fully explored in episode 12b.)

We humbly suggest you read the book along with us!

Holy Madness - The Show
The Holy Madness sifts through the mad world seeking wisdom. We tackle far-ranging heavy subjects with a light touch and “pharismanic” flair.

Alas, the sun has set on the show, and we are not making new episodes. Fans came for the provocative conversation, stayed for the contrarian conclusions, and enjoyed loads of holy madness in-between. And we loved the community that developed around the show.

Whether you're listening again, or discovering the show for the first time: be well and be blessed.

Everything is fascinating. Everything is uncertain. Everything is wearisome.
I'm done with "quiet desperation," I'll talk desperation with everyone.
Sift through the madness, cut through the BS, get a little freer, repeat.
For the love of God. There's nothing else. This is the whole Adam.
