Life changing for me!

I am so happy that Tim and Nate continue to make this podcast! I have felt very uncomfortable in church lately, and I really feel like they are giving the Bible back to me! It’s so obvious now that many people who translated the english version of the Bible would have been giving in to their own biases, and that there would be other interpretations of many passages. Thank you, especially for your episodes on gender.

Finding the questions

I have just started this podcast, but I am already in love. The podcasters don't claim to have all the answers, but they do have really great questions and are thinking through their own thoughts to these questions. It is refreshing to have well-researched theological insight that is willing to be critical and really wrestle with doubt and faith.

Thoughtful and adds diversity to my study

It adds diversity to my study because I have been getting the more conservative evangelical view for many years already. I like to listen to many other points of view to expand my own study of the Bible and world view, and while I still have a long way to go, this podcast has been an important piece of that puzzle. I also think it’s very important in the US, where many people from the news (or maybe spiritual malpractice from their own childhood) have come to think that Christian means only holding certain political views or certain views of the Bible. Between this podcast and The Bible Project, I am starting to see the Bible as a much more beautiful and sacred literary work and have stopped trying to make it be scientific or historic in ways it isn’t meant to be. I do still believe the Word is alive and inspired by the Spirit, but I am actually MORE able to believe that now. The gender series unlocked a new level for me, and I bought Dr Westfall’s book and have shared it with many others. Sometimes I am not quite there with them on some issues. I will either look into my study Bible notes and read the cross references and verify that their point of view is a valid one, even if I don’t go all the way with them on that point, OR I will simply hold it with open hands, happy to know something new about how other people see things. Please keep it up.
