Too many voices from too many Christian denominations to decipher, so we've cut out the middle-man to study the Bible on our own in search for answers to our questions. It can speak for itself because it breaks through the fog of all that is called religion. At times, we'll include the latest scientific discoveries and even touch upon some of the weirder and more controversial portions of Scripture that most of today's Christians avoid.

Exceptional, clear and well spoken Teacher of Founding Word

Josh Allem has such incredible insight about the whole Bible, and the deep truths it holds. I would love to see him renew or return to his podcasts. Because he takes different elements like news, science and Bible prophecy and current events and paints them all into a clear, broad picture that can only excite, amaze & fascinate those wanting to know the mind and Word of God. He has a very deep knowledge of the Word of God.

Extremely Informative

I listened to this podcast about 7 years ago while I was delivering mail. It was one of my best finds. He does an absolutely excellent job at going through the gospels step by step making sense of them in chronological order. I can tell this man is guided by the Holy Spirit and he steers his course very closely to what the Word says, not leaning on his own intellect but rather on the truth of God. I’m currently listening to it for a third time and still gleaning great amounts of fruit. Hope y’all enjoy and God bless you on your journey!
