Welcome to Banned Books, where we read and converse with the rebel children, the holy mischief-makers of God, who fight against the kind of useless religious, spiritual, and moral methods of life improvement that seeks to smother the glory of God in Jesus Christ. We want to introduce you to those who forgot everything except Jesus Christ and him crucified. We all struggle with fear of being last, lost, least, littlest, and dead, and so we are here to encourage, challenge, provoke, and maybe even offend you by introducing you to theologians who at one time or another were banned by their church, declared dangerous, or simply vilified for daring to confess that Christ alone is the way, truth, and life. Welcome rebel children, holy mischief makers, and fools for Christ. This podcast is for you.

    This Hurts You More Than It Hurts Me. Further discussion and analysis of utilitarianism... What happens when we drill down into the harm principle and uncover the truth about human nature? And we jump into post-modernism.

Snowboardin’ Mike ,

Outstanding

I heard Donovan Riley on Ringside With the Preacher Men, another great podcast, and the dude blew me away. Was laying down the knowledge.

I subscribed and no regrets here. Next-level excellence. Thanks so much. God Bless.

Excellent

Thoughtful conversations-whether it’s about a book or current events, always a interesting podcast

pepdaddyisalreadytsken ,

Iron Sharpens Iron

God continues to use these Fordeian-Nestingenian disciples to stretch and grow me. Put in the time. Listen again. “Free to be.”
