Refreshing but careful

A nice review of world events from a Christian worldview that invites those who wouldn’t agree to ask questions too. Recommend listening!

NayoroWalker ,

An insightful, interesting and wise take on contemporary issues from a biblical Christian viewpoint

David Robertson’s podcast is always worth listening to. He’s clear and forthright while being generous to others and humble enough to admit his mistakes. Very helpful.
