It seems like there's a pervasive notion in today's society that the church doesn't do much in their local communities, and Maggie joins us to give us her unique perspective on just how much the church can and should impact our communities.

A Refreshing Perspective

Every Thought Captive presents a Biblically-based, Christian perspective on cultural issues, including politics, that is refreshingly distinct from the polarized mainstream rhetoric. The dialogue is loaded with both empathetic insight and principled truth while avoiding the unhelpful divisiveness of so many critics. This podcast is truly a rare gem among cultural commentaries.

Keeping things real...

I can’t say much more than the other reviews. I’ve only listened to a few podcasts but I’m hooked. Love the format! Keep it up gentlemen!

Beautifully Refreshing

This podcast is one that constantly challenges me to think critically about the world around me in a way that honors Jesus. Not only does it ouch me to grow and learn, but it is always engaging and somewhat lighthearted. I cannot recommend this podcast highly enough!
