Great Stuff and Highly Informative

Love listening to Pete and Jared and their broad range of guests… They’ve helped me negotiate many questions I’ve had about scripture since returning to my faith after being burnt by a the absolutist fundamentalist charismatic approach of my youth. Thanks guys, if this sort of thing had been available in my 30s in Australia (I’m now 62), I probably wouldn’t have wandered into the wilderness to save my sanity, but would have had a life buoy to negotiate the stormy waters of doubt and legalism I’d found myself sinking in… Keep up the great work

Genuinely Edifying and Uplifting

As a gay man who’s lived the last 4-5 years of his life as an atheist, having access to this podcast as a way to invigorate myself with a curiosity about the faith I’m rediscovering that drives me pick up my own Bible every noght before bed, more than I ever did as a child. I’m learning things about the Bible, Christianity, and myself than I thought I could in just under a month. Excellent work—please keep it up!
