Fellow Christian....You need this podcast!

STR has tethered me to biblical truth for years.

My confidence grows with each episode.

If you feel your faith is wavering or wish you could share the gospel or challenge false ideas with confidence, subscribe to this podcast. You won’t look back!

Greg is the clearest thinker I’ve ever encountered. He’s taught me HOW to think, not WHAT to think.

On each show (episode), Greg thinks through important issues with clarity and care. Taking calls from Christians and Atheists, he demonstrates how to take on every challenge in a winsome way.

Fellow Christian....we need this! Our culture (and many Christians) are swallowing false and damaging ideas hook line and sinker. People are hurting and Christians are retreating. We need to engage and we need to know how to engage effectively.

Greg’s teaching in this weekly radio show, the wise responses to tough questions in the STR ask podcast and all the content created by the STR team has given me a deep and confident faith.

(TIP: Subscribe to the STR ask podcast too. It’s awesome).

Greg & team, thank you for your faithfulness.

Great podcast calling for clear thinking.

This is a great podcast for thoughtful people. The way Greg thinks through things is great, and his methods for identifying what is behind a truth claim have really inspired me to do better thinking and call those around me to it as well. Thanks Greg!
