Good Faith Effort

Judaism #40

The Hebrew Bible is every bit America’s moral founding document as the Constitution is our political founding document. Every week, Rabbi Dr. Ari Lamm, speaks with thinkers, writers, artists, and faith leaders to explore how the Bible continues to inform our lives today, from politics to psychology to pop culture, bringing Americans of different traditions and persuasions closer together as so much else threatens to pull us apart.

    Best podcast ever
    Rabbi Lamm provides a breath of fresh air to the emotional debate between liberals and conservatives. He asks his guests from right and left to be daring, to stand for something vital to the success of the American experiment. "Good Faith Effort" is by far my favorite podcast.

    Defining what is right together
    This discussion was like making a spectacular lasagna; it took time to shop for the ingredients, prepare the layers and for it to cook in the oven but then it just came out with delicious ideas; better yet, as the flavours melded over the next hours and days, it has Promised to be that much more remarkable to taste, Thank you.

    A Good Faith Effort, indeed!
    Having grown up with the Hebrew Bible, I’ve always viewed it in a very parochial way. But with his fascinating, wide-ranging guests and insightful questions, host Ari Lamm demonstrates each week anew just how universally relevant the Bible truly is. I’m hooked.

    Big Ideas for a Big Book
    To the uninitiated, the Bible is a dense book relevant to past times. But not so, Ari Lamm brings these timeless treasures to life for our time. These are not apologetics, they are contemporary and relevant insights into the genius of the Divine. Bravo! I look forward to each podcast.

    Smart and attractive—with substance!
    “Good Faith Effort” take a serious subject—the Bible—and makes engaging this wise and holy text an attractive and winsome experience. Host Rabbi Dr. Ari Lamm is an ideal interlocutor for both The Book and his impressive, smart guests and the background music and pop culture references feel more natural than forced. Kudos on the debut of this quality program—thoughtful audiences will want to add the program to their playlist!
