Engaging, applicable, and focused

Though I am not a Baptist, I very much enjoy this podcast. Brian is engaging, and connects deeply with his guests. I enjoy getting to know them and their work while I am reminded what really matters in this life.

The adjective

This podcast has an adjective— and that adjective is GREAT! Love what you do

No agenda but truth

Finally a religious podcast tied to Baptists that isn’t focused on legalistic issues. Instead I always feel enlightened through Biblical perspectives on current issues facing us today.
