Illuminating and Gracious

I have listened to this entire series and enjoyed each episode so much. I found it personally convicting and this course has illuminated my faith and thinking in unexpected ways. I appreciate the professor's personal witness to what he is teaching.

L'Abri Shows Through

The more than two decades of experience show through in this series by Dr. Barrs. He emphasizes how to llisten to the other person and how to respect that person without compromising one's own faith.

Passively Biased

I listened to lesson 26. He one sidedly evaluates the new age movement by basically painting a picture of a spiritual system which frees you from having morals or having to answer to a higher source. He tries to make it look like a self ideology which is completely and utterly a blatant misrepresentation of their beliefs. He does not use facts or even really say anything significant disproving the ideology at all.. He just shows how brainwashed and indoctrinated he is.
