Weekly must listen

Charming presenters discussing serious issues of politics and faith without sounding too serious. Yet proving Manning’s point that ‘all human conflict is ultimately theological’.

Fantastic Pod

Definitely the best thing to come out of the CoE since John Henry Newman! Seriously, it’s obvious a lot of work and thought has gone into this and the commitment to Christian orthodoxy is deeply encouraging.

Wonderful
