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!

Comment on 27 April 2020 Wellhausen episode

Dear Pete,
You’ve got so many interesting things to share.
But why do you need to take a cynical, smarter-than-other-Christians approach? There must be some pain there.
Can you gift us with your wisdom, done from a spirit of enlightening us and exciting us about Christ?
I most enjoy the versions where you interview guests.
God bless.
