    Byzantine Empire

    Byzantine Empire

    The Byzantine capital, Constantinople, was famously fortified with an impenetrable three-wall network, which preserved it from foreign conquest for centuries. But the Byzantine Empire doesn’t have to be impenetrable to us, today.

    On Animals

    Really Old? Single

    Really Old? Single

    With so much riding on such small fragments of our past, how do we know our old stuff is actually old?

    In Christ single

    In Christ single

    One of the surprises when we turn the pages of the New Testament is how little the word “Christian” actually comes up. Given this is the book for Christians you’d expect it to be littered with the words “Christian” and “Christianity.” But the word “Christian” only comes three times, whereas the language of being “in Christ” comes up over 200 times. It’s pretty much everywhere.

Thoughtful and very engaging!

Love this show.
Large array or topics each week and very thoughtful in his responses.

Loads of history, but made simple!

Entertaining and Educational

John and the crew produce an incredible show. High production value, very informative and enjoyable on so many levels. They have found a way to funnel some very complex and challenging topics into a show that is simple and enjoyable yet never feels like it has sacrificed the depth of the topic for simplicity. When I hear the Undeceptions Band start playing I know I’m in for a great show. Keep up the great work!

Enriches My Week!

As I’ve searched more and more hungrily for meaning and understanding in the world we live in, my mind finds comfort in the episodes the Undeceptions crew continue to produce. Dickson is fair, open and interesting. But, he’s also convicted in purpose and this brand of Christian apologetics checks so many boxes form me. I’m grateful for nearly every episode.
