Big Fan

Talk radio style format is perfect and the topic is uplifting. Very encouraged to stir up my love for good literature and the Bible. This is a resource I am putting on my recurring podcast.

Can’t Wait!

I have followed Lorehaven from the beginning and all their content is top notch. I’m excited for this additional resource and the chance to have the “Lorehaven experience” in an a different format.

Balanced Commentary

I very much enjoy the exposure to new stories I’ve not heard of before but even more, I appreciate the balanced approach our hosts bring to the varying degrees of theology and fantastical powers (and license) in their discussions of some pretty delicate issues. It is both freeing and cautionary at the same time and that is a tough needle to thread.
