MTSB #4 - Gordon Johnston

Read more

Gordon is the chair of the charity Bipolar Scotland, a published author of psychological thrillers, and a mental health consultant and researcher who works to identify better ways for systems to serve people. Gordon has a bipolar diagnosis himself, and speaks to us about the romanticised link between mental health and creativity, theories on how bipolar disorder can be triggered by genetic and environmental factors, and how Bipolar Scotland helps families to live with bipolar. He shares stories of mania and depression, giving an insight into what it really means to experience those extremes. A frequent traveller to the US, Gordon discusses the love of Americana music that he and Blair share, the magic of Springsteen’s lyrics, and how songs about mental health and addiction have moved him.

Interview with Dr. Gordon Johnston: Old Testament Issues

Read more

In this episode I interview Dr. Gordon Johnston who is a professor of Old Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. When I was in Dr. Johnston's Hebrew class, I became fascinated with his enthusiasm about the reality of camels during the time of the patriarchs. We also talk about the Old Testament law concerning foreign women and generally about archeological evidence for biblical events.

Trigger Warning: there is broad, non-detailed discussion of rape, forced marriage, and suicide starting in 00:19:30.
