Grateful

I stumble upon these episodes at exactly the right time they are needed. I have been challenged and illuminated with every listen. I am grateful that such time and care is given to each conversation to hear engaging, diverse voices and topics that are intentionally relevant.

Great!

I love this show. So insightful in terms of theology, Christian thought, culture, everything! My only complaint is the theme music. It hurts my ears and I skip through it or literally rip my headphones out every time it comes on! Please consider a change!

Totally Chris ,

Much Needed

Grateful for this (yet another!) deeply formative and helpful resource from Fuller. The recent interview with Bolsinger has been a core challenge and a call for me, as a leader of a small team of Christian creatives.
