Absolutely great!

Thank you so much Fr Mike and Ascension for coming up with this podcast. I have always struggled to finish reading the bible, especially the Old Testament, now we've made a small of group of women and we listen to your podcast as a small group and reflect on the word in the mornings. It fills me with so much hope that I'll finally be able to read the whole Bible to better understand God's heart.

What a blessing to have

I’ve tried to read the bible a few times from front cover to back cover and just got bogged down and gave up. This is fantastic, Fr Mike makes it easy to understand and follow. The way he explains everything is priceless, I can’t get enough. Loving this podcast and recommend it to everyone. Thank you so much. This will certainly change my life.
