James Tabor on PBS–Is This the End Time?

One more in a series of conversations on the PBS show “Closer to Truth” with the ever perceptive host Dr. Robert Kuhn. Here we explore more specifically the question so much in the news with the current Mayan calendar craziness, “Is This the End Time?” For an history and overview of such “millennial” expectations see my article in Bible Review just before the Y2K scare here.

If you are not familiar with this remarkable PBS series created by Dr. Robert Kuhn dealing with the “Big Questions,” namely God, Cosmos, and Consciousness, you can browse some of the past shows here. The group of experts he has gathered together is truly impressive, a virtual “Who’s Who” on all sides of every issue, with Kuhn’s probing skills as host bringing out their best.  I am honored to have been included. Television does not get better than this.
