In a special programme recorded at the the Bloxham Festival of Faith & Literature, William Crawley and guests, including Richard, explored the rich history of Judeo-Christian storytelling.
How old are some of the most popular and familiar biblical stories, and where did they come from? How important has the telling, re-telling and adaptation of stories been throughout the history of Christianity? What challenges do they pose to people of faith?
Other guests include: Canon Dr Edmund Newell, Dr Irving Finkel and Dr Francesca Stavrakopolou. Storytelling in Christianity was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on Monday 7 March 2016.
