Ep 22 - (Re)Tell Me the Stories of Jesus: Mormon Perspectives on the Chosen

Updated: Feb 17, 2023

In this episode, we dive into everyone's favorite show starring Jesus, The Chosen. With guests Dallin Crump and poet Merrijane Rice, we give a Latter-day Saint perspective on the multi-season New Testament adaptation phenomenon. What does Drew Barrymore's Cinderella adaptation Ever After have to do with The Chosen? What scenes were the most moving to us as Latter-day Saints? What's it like to produce creative work based on scripture? And how do Mormons feel about the evangelical controversy about LDS doctrine supposedly sneaking into the show?
