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.
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.
A wonderful treasure trove of wisdom and insight. I enjoy the way Dr. Labberton begins by asking his guests how their story ties in with the topic under discussion, and also how often his guests note that he has asked the perfect question or sometimes rephrased what they said in a way that clearly expresses their thoughts. With great intro and ending music—who are the musicians, by the way?
