Keeping it real!

This podcast has been such an eye opener on so many levels. I’ve never liked or enjoyed history much as a child but as a believer in Christ I now understand church history does matter. Everything you both have shared has helped me better understand things I already knew about or was unaware existed. I’m very grateful for each podcast that is aired. Keep the history facts coming, keep the laughter rolling, & keep up the great work ya are doing!! #HisStorydoesmatter

Not much history, mostly right-wing politics

I was looking for an objective podcast about church history. I don’t mind a faith-based perspective but I don’t enjoy the irrelevant snide remarks about promoting “diversity” and liberalism “creeping in.” I’m not going to listen to 30 minutes of talk radio editorializing for 5 minutes of interesting theology.

Church History is so Important!

I’m so thankful to see God honoring, Biblically sound believers discussing such an important topic.
