Join Travis as he talks with E. Randolph "Randy" Richards as they talk about all things culture, eating insects, and stuff like individualism, collectivism, patronage, kinship, brokerage, modesty, and the Godfather!?

Randy Richards is a Ph.D. who loves training students for ministry, both domestically and internationally. He has been teaching since 1986, originally at a state university and then abroad at an Indonesian seminary. Randy is honored to serve as the provost at Palm Beach Atlantic University, Florida's premier Christian university and seminary.

He is a popular speaker and teacher in churches and workshops. He has authored and co-authored dozens of books and articles including A Little Book for New Biblical Scholars, Paul Behaving Badly, Rediscovering Jesus, Misreading Scripture with Western Eyes, Rediscovering Paul, The Story of Israel and Paul and First-Century Letter Writing. He is currently writing What Went Without Being Said: Cultural Values in the Biblical World with Richard James and Rediscovering the New Testament with Capes and Reeves. He is also working on the new John volume in the Word Biblical Commentary series.

His wife Stacia has joyfully accompanied him from the jungles of Indonesia to rice fields in Arkansas to beautiful South Florida. They have two fine sons: Josh (Ph.D. 2012, University of St. Andrews, Scotland), an English professor in Arkansas, and Jacob (Ph.D. 2014, College of Medicine, University of Florida), in pharmaceuticals in Illinois.

Missions remain in the hearts of Randy and Stacia. Randy leads mission trips and conducts missionary training workshops and regularly leads tours of the Holy Land, Turkey, Greece, and Italy. He has served as interim pastor of numerous churches, but down inside, he is just an old Bible teacher. He and Stacia reside in Palm Beach, Florida.

Travis and Randy do a deep dive into Randy's new book, "Misreading Scripture with Individualist Eyes." Happy listening!
