After a summer holiday, the Bible Bash team has returned! This month, Liam takes a look at the story in Numbers 13 and 14 – the story of the Hebrew scouts, which reveals the reason the people were destined to wander for 40 years before entering the promised land.
Liam raises important questions:
- Is this story of the scouts a story of failing faith, as we are so often told, or is it something more?
- What about Caleb’s “different spirit”?
- Is a brave and unfettered “different spirit” the way into the promised land for all of us?
Don offers a reading from Feminist thinkers Rosemarie Tong and Tina Fernandes Botts. Don’s reading is found in the book, Feminist Thought: A More Comprehensive Introduction

If you like Bible Bash podcast, you will LOVE Liam Hooper’s latest book!
In Trans-Forming Proclamation, Liam Hooper tenderly explores gender and the Bible. This book actually defies genre. With rich patches of poetry, memoir, and devotional, Liam weaves together inspiring literary insights with grounded, original, and informed scholarship. Trans-Forming proclamation: A Transgender Theology of Daring Existence is new wine in a new wine skin. It is Inventive, artful, and liberating. Available on Amazon.
In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, , Liam Michael Hooper, a white trans Bible scholar and Don Durham, a white, cis, heterosexual farmer, minister, and podcaster take turns presenting the text. They then discuss. In addition, each episode they present another text, a non-Biblical text of note–religious or secular–that may or may not correspond to the Bible text.
Bible Bash Podcast is a collaborative project created by Liam Hooper, Don Durham, and Peterson Toscano.
