The very best podcast available

If you are a Christ follower this is the MOST important podcast you should be listening to. Dr Kiethly is an absolute genius and the guests are super knowledgeable about all varieties of content. I cannot rate this highly enough and count it a true blessing to have this information available.

Dr. Ryan G. ,

Irenic yet clear about difficult cultural issues.

Each week I look forward to the new episode of the Christ and Culture podcast. In a culture passionately divided, often the only voices we hear are angry voices. Dr. Keathley and Dr. Quinn model good listening, clear thinking, and provide strong yet irenic voices to the most challenging cultural issues we face in North America. Their example honors Christ while engaging with critical issues.

Dr. Sam K. ,
