Great Gospel Podcast

Overall I really enjoy all the different perspectives and topics brought up by Dave and his guest. Really helps to, as the title says, Equip you in Grace. The only negative thing I could say is that sometimes it feels like Dave switches from preaching to scolding the auidence on some topics.

Jason GW ,

Great content!

I love this podcast. Sure, I get to contribue to some of the content (and I pray it is helpful!); but the other episodes that include authors, writers, and pastors are just plain fantastic.
