A new favorite!

I am enjoying these quick lessons that dig deeper into the text. Evan is an intelligent, well spoken and well studied teacher. I love the insight he offers. The podcast shows a glimpse into the studies for each prepared sermon and adds extra context to the Sunday message, sharing his own wealth of knowledge on each topic.
