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!
