Customer ReviewsSee All
I really enjoy listening to Samantha interview people. It seems to me she is good at getting people to open up with their story. I love the “Why the heck do you believe in Jesus?” and I love hearing each person’s reason. I almost can’t believe there are so many answers but of course there would be because our God is so amazing and diverse and oh so thankfully not limited by our perception of Him.
Normal Christian asks another normal Christian questions of faith and life
Samantha Freestone is a fun, engaging host to this podcast about asking normal Christian people questions. A lot of the time Sam meets the guest 15 minutes before recording, as she admits on the podcast. She often goes through their origins and upbringing, dwelling on noticeable points along the way, as well as focusing on their current work and faith journey. She always ends the conversation with the sincere question, "Why the heck do you believe in Jesus?"
I always benefit from listening to the engagement Sam has with the guests. I can learn a lot about people through them sharing their stories. This podcast makes even fairly high profile Christians to seem more approachable and normal. I'm thankful for that. I'd recommend this podcast for everyone.
Got onto this podcast from listening to the open doors one. Great testimonies and stories of life and faith. It's a great listen and a great en encouragement!
